Draft Project Purpose and Need


The primary purpose of the proposed project is to enhance north-south mobility in the region by completing the I-795 freeway connection between I-40 and I-95. The freeway connection would provide a high-speed roadway with full control of access within the U.S. 117 Corridor.
 

Additional benefits of the project include a reduced potential for crashes due to the elimination of driveways, intersections and at-grade railroad crossings; and fulfilling the Strategic Transportation Corridor vision.
