Existing I-485 to be Widened up to Arrowood Road

(July 24, 2004) The new section of I-485 will have three lanes each way, and the North Carolina general Assembly recently approved funds to widen the section between I-77 and Johnston Road. But what about the part between those sections that lies between I-77 and Arrowood Road? If it's left at two lanes it could become a big bottleneck.

Fortunately, its widening actually is already in the works and is scheduled for next year. Contracts could be let "as early as this October," said Tom Thrower, Division Traffic Engineer with the North Carolina Department of Transportation. He does no know yet if that section will have six or eight total lanes.
