N.C. 540 Southeast Extension

Project #R-2721, R-2828, R-2829
Type: Road Extension
Affected Counties: Wake, Johnston


N.C. 540 Southeast Extension project was developed by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) in order to meet the growing population and traffic in southeastern Wake county.

For this project, 16 Alternative Route options were created however in April 2016, NCDOT selected the “orange-green-mint-green” for construction. This route was selected based on public input as well as federal, state and local agency partners. Fortunately, out of all the alternatives that were presented, this one minimizes the amount of residents and businesses that would have to relocate.

The project is broken up into three parts: R-2721 (N.C. 55 Bypass to U.S. 401), R-2828 (U.S. 401 to I-40), and R-2829 (I-40 to U.S. 64/264).

Construction dates are not finalized yet however it is anticipated that construction of R-2721 will begin in 2018, R-2828 will begin in 2024, and R-2829 is still not yet determined.
