Old Carriage Road Widening

NCDOT TIP # U-5996
Project Type:
 Road widening
Affected Counties:
Estimated Cost: $


The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to widen Old Carriage Road to two lanes of travel in each direction from just north of Eastern Avenue & Sunset Avenue to its intersection with Green Hills Road & Reges Store Road. The project also includes constructing roundabouts at the southern entrance to Nash County Community College, the US 64 interchange, and the Green Hills Road & Reges Store Road intersection.

Additionally the NCDOT intends to impose control of access across some portions of Old Carriage Road, which means those property owners may see their direct access to Old Carriage Road limited or outright eliminated as deemed necessary by the NCDOT.

The purpose of the project is to provide better access onto US-64 & I-95 for the Rocky Mount area and to accommodate the city’s increasing economic development. These improvements will tie into two additional NCDOT projects expected to move forward in the near future: the widening of Eastern Avenue from Red Oak Road to Old Carriage Road, the widening of Sunset Avenue & I-95 interchange improvements.
