Complete 540 / Southeast Extension: Project Details
For many years, the I-540 interstate surrounding Raleigh, North Carolina has remained incomplete. Today, NCDOT is actively working to complete the Southeast Extension (otherwise known as the “Complete 540” project). One of the most expensive projects in the area, projects R-2721A, R-2721B, and R-2828 are expected to cost at least $2.2 billion.
The Southeast Extension of I-540 (Triangle Expressway) would link Apex, Cary, Clayton, Garner, Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs and Raleigh. When completed, this new portion of highway will run from NC-55 bypass in Apex to US-64/US-264 (I-87) in Knightdale.
According to NCDOT, the project will address pressing social, economic and mobility considerations in Wake County, including easing heavy traffic on roadways including I-440, I-40, NC-55 and Ten Ten Road.
Hundreds of properties will likely be taken by NCDOT under the power of eminent domain in order to complete the project. Affected property owners have the right to seek “just compensation” (fair market value) for their taken property — a right guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.
