Raleigh Beltline I-540 Project

Southeast Extension

The proposed Raleigh Beltline I-540 project, also known as the Complete 540 project and the Southeast Extension, would extend the Triangle Expressway to complete the 540 Outer Loop around the Raleigh area. Billed as an answer to the transportation, social, and economic needs of Wake and Johnston counties, the project would link Apex, Cary, Clayton, Garner, Fuquay Varina, Holly Springs, and Raleigh. Additionally, it would connect a number of major roadways in southern Raleigh.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has announced that construction on this project will begin in 2017. The completed project is expected to open to traffic by June of 2020. Click here for more information and updates on this project.

Project planners anticipate that the Southeast Extension will be completed in three separate phases:

  • R-2721 – NC 55 Bypass to US 401
  • R-2828 – US 401 to I-40
  • R-2829 – I-40 to U.S. 64/264 Bypass (I-495)
