TriEx construction will affect NC 54, NC 147, Hopson and Davis traffic

Bookmark and Share

The N.C. Turnpike Authority warns drivers that construction on the Triangle Expressway toll road will require detours, lane shifts and brief traffic stops in coming months on several roads around Research Triangle Park.

* Davis Drive will have a detour between Development Drive and Hopson Road starting May 8, and continuing through February, to allow construction of a drainage culvert.

* Construction of a new N.C. 54 bridge will require nighttime traffic stops on N.C. 147 south of Interstate 40, and nighttime lane closures on N.C. 54, until mid-May.

* Traffic flaggers occasionally will stop traffic on Hopson Road between Davis Drive and Louis Stephens Drive to allow trucks to cross the road between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., for the next three months.  

More information about the TriEx project is online at the NCTA TriEx site and at a construction update site for the Western Wake Freeway portion. [This corrects earlier URL error and adds a second URL - 5/4/2010.]

Toll Road Disruption

It would be nice to have a full map of what is happening for those of us who live nearby. The link to the TriEx project is broken.

Link fixed and second link added

Thanks for pointing out the bad link, my bad.  I fixed it and added another one I hope you'll find helpful.
