NCDOT will live stream the public hearing for those unable to attend.
RALEIGH – The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold the last of three public meetings today from 4 to 6:30 p.m. for the project known as Complete 540. The public hearing is scheduled for 7 p.m. tonight. Both are at the Wake Tech Community College in the Student Services Building, on the second floor in room 213/214.
Those unable to attend the public hearing today can follow along with the live stream
of the event.
This work will extend the Triangle Expressway from the N.C. 55 Bypass in Apex to the U.S. 64/U.S. 264 Bypass in Knightdale, completing the 540 Outer Loop around the greater Raleigh area. This will link the towns of Apex, Cary, Clayton, Garner, Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs and Raleigh. By better connecting these towns and cities, the project is anticipated to ease congestion on area roads, including Interstate 440, I-40, N.C. 42, N.C. 55 and Ten Ten Road.
NCDOT will use data from the Draft EIS, including categories such as cost, and impacts on environment, homes and businesses, and historic sites, as well as past and new public comments to recommend a preferred alternative. The Draft EIS does not eliminate any of the alternatives for Complete 540.
