Fayetteville Outer Loop (I-295)
Project # U-2519, including U-2519AA, U-2519AB, U-2519BA, U-2519BB, U-2519CA
Type: New route; roadway improvements
Affected Counties: Cumberland
Estimated Cost: $678,474,000
The proposed Fayetteville Outer Loop (I-295) is a new 39-mile-long freeway that will wrap around western Fayetteville bypassing the city. The project is driven by Fort Bragg's need for quick access to I-95. The Loop will connect Fort Bragg to I-95 and enhance mobility options for the military and ease congestion at the Fort Bragg gates. It will also help improve vehicle capacity and relieve traffic congestion.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) states that the project will also help ease traffic on local roads, connect major routes in the southern, western, and northern portions of Fayetteville, create alternative commuting routes for approximately 25,000 soldiers and civilians, and provide another crossing over the Cape Fear River.
The entire project is scheduled to be constructed in five phases and completed in 2022. Phase 2 is currently under construction.
Phase 1, from U.S. 401 Business/Ramsey Street to All American Freeway, is expected to be completed in December 2016.
Phase 2, from All American Freeway to Cliffdale Road, is expected to be complete in the fall of 2018.
