The Glenwood Avenue interchange on I-440 was originally built in the 1960s, upgraded in the early 1990s and cannot handle the volume of traffic that uses it today. That volume is projected to grow substantially as Raleigh continues to grow in the coming years. The operational and safety issues we are currently experiencing have led to a project that includes the I-440/Glenwood Avenue interchange, the intersection of Glenwood Avenue and the Ridge/Lead Mine Roads, the I-440/Ridge Road interchange, as well as the replacement of the bridge on Blue Ridge Road over Crabtree Creek.
This public engagement platform is intended to provide an opportunity for interested citizens to provide input on the project and questions will be updated frequently throughout the planning process.

INTERACTIVE STUDY AREA MAP
* This map for general information only.
The study area is a geographical area in which information on Human and Natural Environmental features are gathered during the preliminary planning process.
NCDOT is working on studies that will identify interchange design options that will best address the needs of the project study area. Once the initial studies are complete, the project team will begin developing alternatives for the public to review and requesting comments.
The project is following a study process outlined by the National Environmental Policy Act, a law that requires NCDOT to study and document the environmental effects of the proposed project.
