Morrisville Parkway Grade Separation


September 2016 UPDATE

Morrisville Parkway is now open after a 6-month closure for NCDOT's Grade Separation. One lane in each direction will be closed until mid-September to allow the contractor to complete work on the median and pave the final surface of the roadway.  Once the final surface is paved and the pavement markings installed, both lanes in each direction will be opened to traffic.  The project is expected to be complete by May 2017.

This NCDOT project is being funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The project will eliminate an at-grade rail road crossing by building a bridge over the Morrisville Parkway.

Morrisville Parkway Grade Separation is one of twenty projects proposed in the Southeast High Speed Rail Corridor. These projects are designed to lower trip times, increase capacity, and ensure safety and reliability through: track construction and reconfiguration (i.e., double tracking, passing siding extension/addition, crossovers/interlocking, curve realignment, and higher speed turnouts); highway/railroad grade crossing safety improvements; renovated/new support facilities; upgraded/enhanced passenger stations; and additional vehicle capacity.
