Project #U-2719
Type: Road Widening
Affected County: Wake

The NC Department of Transportation is making significant improvements to the Raleigh beltline along I-440 between just south of Walnut Street in Cary and north of Wade Avenue in Raleigh.  The project will include additional lanes and is designed to improve traffic flow, access and efficiency along the roadway.  Changes include widening I-440 from four to six lanes, replacing pavement and bridges and upgrading interchanges.

The estimated cost will be $450-475M.  This section of the Raleigh beltline is the oldest existing portion of I-440 and frustrates commuters with daily slow-downs and regular wrecks.
