Tired of the RTP traffic to and from work?

Sick of sitting in traffic to and from work? NCDOT has the solution!

“The state Department of Transportation will start work this spring on a long-sought project to ease congestion at one of the Triangle's worst rush-hour pinch points: the cramped interchange of Interstates 40 and 540 near Research Triangle Park.

The DOT is about to award C.C. Mangum of Raleigh a $7.6million contract to add an outer lane that will ease morning backups on westbound I-540 and westbound I-40. The added lane will start on I-540 just south of the Pleasant Grove Church Road overpass, continuing into the exit collector lane and the off-ramp onto westbound I-40, ending at the Page Road exit. The lane should be completed by December, DOT said.”

Whoooo hooo! So glad that in the near future are going to be able to have a easier drive to and from work!
