Project Highlights

Aviation Parkway will be upgraded to a four-lane, median divided roadway with a 10-foot multi-use path on the south side and a 5-foot sidewalk on the north side. Two options are being presented at the intersection with N.C. 54. For both, left turns will not be allowed at Aviation Parkway/N.C. 54, but instead will be accommodated through a new, short loop road (“quadrant-loop”). The two options would either add a quadrant-loop in the northeast quadrant or in the southeast quadrant.

The project will tie into the Aviation Parkway/I-40 interchange improvement project (STIP No. I-5506), which is currently under construction.

Public Involvement

NCDOT began the planning and design phase for this project in late 2015. The first public meeting was held in February 2016. At this meeting, the project team presented the study area and the purpose of the project. The public was asked for their concerns and needs along the corridor. A second public meeting was held on June 12, 2019.

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. The following information explains right of way acquisition and answers questions about the process.
