The Triangle Innovation Point Roadway Network Improvements will be completed in two phases.

 

Phase 1  (Public Meeting Map for Phase 1)

Anticipated improvements include: 

  • modifying the U.S. 1 interchange with Old U.S. 1 (Exit 84)

  • adding a new U.S. 1 interchange with New Elam Church Road 

  • realigning New Elam Church Road between U.S. 1 and Old U.S. 1

    • upgrading this section of New Elam Church Road to a multi-lane facility

  • revising the existing U.S. 1 interchange with Pea Ridge Road (Exit 81) to a diverging diamond interchange design

  • realigning Pea Ridge Road between U.S. 1 and Old U.S. 1

    • upgrading this section of Pea Ridge Road to a multi-lane facility

Diverging Diamond Interchanges 

A DDI is proposed as part of Phase 2 at Pea Ridge Road over U.S. 1. 

A diverging diamond interchange allows two directions of traffic to temporarily cross to the left side of the road. It moves high volumes of traffic through an intersection without increasing the number of lanes and traffic signals. This movement provides easier access to a freeway or interstate.

Resources for Property Owners

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.
