Complete 540 Project Public Meetings to Take Place Next Week

RALEIGH – The North Carolina Turnpike Authority (NCTA) and North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will hold public meetings next week to share information about the Complete 540 project and solicit public comment.  The project will extend the Triangle Expressway from the N.C. 55 Bypass in Apex to U.S. 64/U.S. 264 (I-495) in Knightdale, completing the 540 Outer Loop around the greater Raleigh area.

NCTA and NCDOT will provide information on the project, share the preliminary highway design and gather feedback from the public.

The three public meetings and one hearing are scheduled at the following times and locations:

Tuesday, Feb. 20, 6 – 8 p.m.

Holly Springs High School Cafeteria

5329 Cass Holt Road, Holly Springs

Wednesday, Feb. 21, 6 – 8 p.m.

The public meetings will be open house style and citizens can stop by at any time. Verbal comments will be recorded at the meetings for inclusion in the public hearing record. The hearing on Thursday will include a formal presentation, followed by an opportunity for the public to provide verbal comments. Written comments can be submitted at the meetings, at the hearing, or immediately following these meetings. Information gathered in the public meetings and hearing will be used in developing final design plans for the project. All comments carry the same weight, regardless of how they are submitted.

The project’s updated schedule and more information can be found on the Complete 540 website.
