Aviation Parkway Interchange
Project # I-5506
Type: Interchange improvements
Affected Counties: Wake
Estimated Cost: $22,903,000
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to upgrade the interchange at Aviation Parkway and I-40 and add an auxiliary lane westbound at Exit 285 from Aviation Parkway to Airport Blvd.
The growth of RDU Airport and surrounding commercial developments have resulted in greater traffic demands which exceed the capacity of this interchange, originally constructed in 1969. The additional lane and loop style exit ramp is anticipated to ease these traffic concerns.
- Right-of-way acquisition – 2016

It is estimated that 10 parcels of land will be impacted by this project. Currently the DOT has set aside $1,843,000 million for right-of-way takings. If your property will be affected, contact one of our attorneys (two of whom previously worked on behalf of the NCDOT) for a free case evaluation.
