State highway planners say they are committed to finishing Raleigh's 540 Outer Loop in southern Wake County, and they'll outline their options at three public meetings planned for mid-October.
The so-called Complete 540 project would extend the six-lane expressway east from its Holly Springs endpoint to Interstate 40 near Garner, and then north to the other endpoint at U.S. 64 near Knightdale.
540 is a toll-free road in northern Wake, but it will be completed as a toll road across southern Wake. DOT is considering a number of possible routes.
Residents are invited to open-house meetings at these times and places:
* Monday, Oct. 14, 4 – 7 p.m.
