U.S. 117 and Country Club Road Interchange
Project # R-5719
Affected Counties: Wayne
Estimated Cost: $18,230,000
As part of a larger transportation construction effort, the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to construct a new interchange where U.S. 117 and Country Club Road (SR 1135) meet in Mt. Olive just a bit southwest of Goldsboro and Seymour Johnson Air Force Base.
The larger NCDOT construction project will include a 24-mile-long freeway (I-795) that links I-40 to I-95 in eastern North Carolina. Much of this new freeway will run roughly parallel to U.S. 117.
It is presumed that the new interstate corridor will help enhance north-south mobility and connect the interstates and cities throughout this region of eastern North Carolina. In addition, it would allow for regional traffic growth as well as traffic growth on U.S. 117 between Goldsboro and Wilson.
