Falls of Neuse Road Lane Additions

Fast Facts

NCDOT TIP # U-5826
Project Type:
 Lane additions
Affected Counties:
Estimated Cost: $


The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to add two additional lanes to a 0.9-mile stretch of Falls of Neuse Road, between I-540 and Durant Road in Raleigh. The road would change from four lanes to six with a median to separate traffic flow.

The lane additions are for the purpose of alleviating safety and traffic concerns.

Some affected residents have concerns, and they don’t believe widening the road justifies the damage to affected residential areas and neighborhoods. The NCDOT has not proposed any noise barriers to homes that back up to Falls of Neuse Road. Concerns are not only of property loss, but also decreased property values as a result of the potential for increased noise.
