I-40/Blue Ridge Road Interchange Project

The N.C. Department of Transportation proposes to convert I-40/Blue Ridge Road (S.R. 2500) grade-separation to an interchange, widen Blue Ridge Road from just south of the new interchange north to U.S. 70 and construct a roundabout at the intersection of Blue Ridge Road and N.C. 9.    

Right-of-Way Acquisition for the I-40 Interchange is scheduled to begin in June of 2021.  Construction will LET in June of 2023. 


DOT has chosen Interchange Alternative Plan 2.
