NW Judd Parkway Extension

Fast Facts

Project # U-5317
Type: Parkway Extension
Affected Counties: Wake
Estimated Cost: $26,500,000


The Town of Fuquay-Varina and the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plan to complete the loop around Fuquay-Varina by extending Judd Parkway a final 2.2 miles.

The roadway will be built partially on Wilbon Road and partially on a new location.

Construction will begin at the intersection of NC 42 (West Academy Street) and SW Judd Parkway. It will end at the intersection of NC 55 (North Broad Street) and Wilbon Road/Northeast Judd Parkway.

The extension will consist of a four-lane road with curb and gutter, a grassed median, four-foot bicycle lanes, and sidewalks.

The existing railroad crossing on Coley Farm Road will be closed, and an at-grade crossing will be added on the proposed NW Judd Parkway. Additionally, Washington Street will be extended to intersect with the proposed NW Judd Parkway. Bridge Street will be realigned to intersect with NW Judd Parkway at the current Three Meadows Road.
