Proposed widening of N.C. 54 from Shiloh Glenn Drive to Perimeter Park Drive in Morrisville, Wake County
PROJECT OVERVIEW & PURPOSE
The North Carolina Department of Transportation is proposing to improve N.C. 54 as a 4-lane, median-divided principal arterial with no control of access in Wake County, North Carolina. The project extends from Shiloh Glenn Drive, northwest of N.C. 540, to Perimeter Park Drive (approximately 1.2 miles) in the Town of Morrisville. The proposed action is listed in the Draft NCDOT 2018-2027 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) as Project Number U-5750.
The purpose of the project is to improve traffic flow and operational efficiency to enhance mobility along N.C. 54 from Shiloh Glenn Drive to Perimeter Park Drive in the Town of Morrisville, by reducing anticipated delays as compared to those anticipated in the future no-build condition.
The project is included in the Capital Area Metropolitan Transportation Organization (CAMPO) 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) as project A222c. The project also aligns with the Morrisville Transportation Plan: 2009-2035, which states that N.C. 54 should be widened to four lanes in the project study area.
This project is listed as Project U-5750 in the N.C. Department of Transportation’s State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) and is funded for $24,236,000.
