Project Overview

The N.C. Department of Transportation is proposing to make improvements at the intersection of Old Stage Road (S.R. 1006) and Rock Service Station Road (S.R. 2736).  The proposed project would also widen Old Stage Road from Rock Service Station Road to Rolling Meadows Drive in Wake County. The purpose of this project is to reduce congestion in the study area and improve mobility at the intersection of Old Stage Road and Rock Service Station Road.  The existing two-lane road would be widened to include four 12-foot lanes, two northbound and two southbound, with a 17.5-foot raised median, curb and gutter, a 5-foot sidewalk on one side, and a 10-foot multi-use path on the other side. 

The project would require additional right of way, and temporary construction easements will be utilized.

The project map has been updated:

  1. The intersection of Old Stage Road and Rock Service Station Road has been realigned to a 90-degree angle to improve driver sight lines and increase intersection safety.
  2. In response to comments received regarding safety at Banks Road, a Reduced Conflict Intersection (RCI) design has been added at this location.  The RCI design will eliminate left turns from Banks Road onto Old Stage Road. Motorists wishing to turn left will turn right, and make a u-turn at the new u-turn bulb located at the signal for the realigned intersection with Old Stage Road.  Left turns will be permitted from Old Stage Road onto Banks Road.

Typical Roadway Section


The Wake County Transportation Plan (2003) recommends that Old Stage Road be widened from a two-lane, undivided, rural roadway to a four-lane, median-divided roadway from Ten Ten Road to Rock Service Station Road.  This project will help alleviate future congestion anticipated due to rapid growth in the area.

The Strategic Transportation Investments (STI) law includes a provision for a funding allocation to local governments based on funding contributed by the local government to transportation projects or revenue from tolling. This bonus allocation can be used to fund the construction of other eligible highway projects.

Early in 2020, the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) received notice from NCDOT that there would be a bonus allocation to CAMPO from the N.C. 540 (toll road) project. This project, on Old Stage Road, was one of several selected by CAMPO for the bonus allocation funding. NCDOT began project development work for the project in early 2021.

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.
