North Carolina’s Department of Transportation (NCDOT) was awarded $750 million for Complete 540, which encompasses three Design-Build projects that will extend the Triangle Expressway. Construction is a Southeast Extension from the existing western terminus of 540 at N.C. 55 Bypass in Apex to interchange at I-40/US 70 Bypass in Garner. S&ME is part of a Construction Engineering and Inspection (CEI) team led by Summit Design and Engineering. S&ME is providing multiple CEI technicians for roadway inspection, structure inspection, and HiCAMS duties and full-time personnel directly to NCDOT to review and analyze the project schedule.
This project will meet the substantial transportation, social, and economic demands of southeastern Wake County.
