North Carolina awards $11.6m road contract

North Carolina Department of Transportation has awarded a contract worth US$11.6m for construction of a stretch of McCrimmon Parkway in Morrisville, Wake County.

The new section will be a four-lane median-divided road with eight-foot sidewalks. On its east end, it starts at the intersection where Evans Road currently ends at Aviation Parkway. The intersection will get upgrades as part of the project. There will be two through lanes on Aviation Parkway, with an additional southbound left-turn lane and right-turn lane, as well as a northbound left-turn lane for traffic turning onto the new section of McCrimmon Parkway. Both Evans Road and McCrimmon Parkway will also have right and left-turn lanes to access Aviation Parkway.

The west end of the new section of road will link up to an existing section of McCrimmon Parkway that goes between Airport Boulevard and west of Perimeter Park Drive.

Work on the new section of McCrimmon Parkway can start as early as 30 April. By mid-November 2019, all work should wrap up except vegetation improvements, which can continue into May 2020.

Once completed, this new section will connect with a part of McCrimmon Parkway that the Town of Morrisville is currently building, filling the gap between where it currently ends near Perimeter Park Drive and N.C. 54. 

Once the town project and the NCDOT project are both complete, McCrimmon Parkway is expected to provide some congestion relief for the heavily-traveled section of N.C. 54 between Airport Boulevard and Aviation Parkway.
