N.C 55 ROAD WIDENING

Fast Facts

NCDOT TIP #R-5705
Project Type:
Road widening
Affected Counties:
Harnett/Wake
Estimated Cost: $50,618,000

Description

The NCDOT plans to widen to four lanes a section of N.C. 55 Highway in Harnett and Wake Counties. The expansion will begin with a 2.4-mile section stretching from Old Buies Creek Road (SR 1542) in Angier, to slightly north of Kennebec Church Road (SR 2791). In early 2016, additional funding allowed the state to add an additional 1.6-mile section from slightly north of Kennebec Church Road to Jicarilla Lane. The total widening effort will span four miles.

N.C. 55 is a major thoroughfare and primary connector for Fuquay-Varina, Angier, Coats, and Erwin, and is anticipated to be over capacity by 2035. The primary purpose of this project is to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow on N.C. 55 in the Angier area.

Highway widening will take place in three phases, R-5705A, R-5705B, and R-5705C, as indicated on the maps below.
