Morrisville Parkway Grade Separation

 

Overview:

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.
