July 15, 2015

Raleigh, NC – The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded an $18.4 million contract to create a new interchange on the Triangle Expressway at Old Holly Springs-Apex Road. This is the first new interchange along North Carolina’s first modern toll road since its final phase opened in 2013.

The interchange was requested by local transportation planners, and included in the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) Long Range Transportation Plan and will improve mobility for current traffic, as well as for much larger volumes of traffic anticipated within the next ten years, as a result of substantial growth/development. Traffic along Old Holly Springs-Apex Road is projected to increase from 1,900 vehicles per day in 2010 to 34,900 vehicles per day in 2035.
