Eastern Wake residents are invited to an open house Thursday for an update on the N.C. Turnpike Authority's plans for the eastern leg of the Triangle Expressway toll road.
That's the part that would run from Interstate 40 near Garner north to the eastern tip of the 540 Outer Loop on U.S. 64 / 264 at Knightdale.
The meeting is 4:30 to 7:30pm Thursday at the Barnwell Road Community Center, 3935 Barnwell Road, Raleigh.
Planning for the eastern leg of the TriEx Southeast Extension is several years behind work on the southern section between Holly Springs and Garner. Garner residents are pressing the turnpike authority to drop consideration of the alternate "Red Route" for that road, which would run through the middle of town.
