Here is a brief weekly update from the RTA business coalition — the voice of the regional business community on transportation.

NCDOT improves I-40 ramps at NC 54 - Raleigh/Cary
This week marks the substantial completion of the first improvement for the section of I-40 between Raleigh and Cary since the completion of the strategic widening that RTA pushed a decade ago. NCDOT has just expanded both of the off-ramps for the NC 54 interchange (exit 290). As noted in this week's Thursday Thoughts at 3 blog, the off-ramps have been widened, and storage lengths lengthened, which will help those traveling on I-40 as well as travelers getting off onto NC 54. This is a very timely and cost-effective improvement that will relieve congestion and improve safety and just in time for the fair.
