Our local I-40 road widening is still a pain in the butt, but it’s really good for future development. The purpose of this massive project will improve the traffic flow and continuity between the existing eight-lane section at the beginning of the project (I-85) and the six-lane section at the end of the project (Durham County Line). Daily commuters between points west of I-85 and U.S. 15-501 should also experience fewer delays. Another tortoise analogy here, but we will appreciate that the improvements are thoughtfully planned and done right the first time.
