Project Highlights

The North Carolina Department of Transportation proposes to add a left-turn lane at the westbound I-540 ramp to Lumley Road and make signal timing improvements at the ramp intersection with Lumley Road and Arco Corporate Drive.  The additional left-turn lane will be added by converting the existing striped median into a left-turn lane.  A raised concrete median will divide on-ramp and off-ramp traffic.  This project is intended to improve traffic safety at the intersection.

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.
