R-3410: N.C. 42 Widening, Johnston Co.

Thank you for taking the time to respond to this survey. Here is a summary of the project:

The proposed project will widen N.C. 42 (South Lombard Street in Clayton) from a two-lane roadway to a four-lane, median-divided roadway. Median openings to allow left turns will be provided at key locations. Others will permit U-turns. The project will extend from N.C. 50 to U.S. 70 Business, but will not include the I-40/N.C. 42 interchange.  Improvements to the I-40/N.C. 42 interchange are part of a separate project (identified as STIP Project No. I-4739) which is also in the development phase. New bridges over Swift Creek, Little Creek, and White Oak Creek are planned.
