I-5970: I-440 - Capital Boulevard Interchange

I-5970: I-440 - Capital Boulevard Interchange

The N.C. Department of Transportation is proposing to reconfigure the interchange on I-440 at Capital Boulevard in northeast Raleigh. Improvements are also being considered along Capital Boulevard between the interchange and Brentwood Road. The interchange area is often congested today, with traffic backing up onto I-440 and through adjacent intersections on Capital Boulevard. Traffic operations are anticipated to worsen as volumes increase. 

The planning and design phase of this project began in Summer 2018. The NCDOT design team is coordinating with the Capital Boulevard North Corridor Study, currently underway by the City of Raleigh. More information on the Corridor Study can be found here:  Capital Boulevard North

The NCDOT interchange project recommendations will be informed by the findings of the Corridor Study.

Although the N.C. Department of Transportation works to minimize the number of homes and businesses displaced by a road project, it is inevitable, in many cases, that a certain amount of private property is needed.
