Q. Are there any plans on adding an exit/on-off ramp to I-140 at North College Road or Blue Clay Road? It is difficult for people living in this area to travel to Porters Neck.

A. The interchange at I-140/U.S. 17 and Blue Clay Road is included in the State Transportation Improvement Program, but according to Al Edgerton, Jr., a N.C. DOT project manager, right of way and construction costs are unfunded, and therefore the project will not begin moving forward until at least 2023.


Why have some of the rest stops along I-40 between Wilmington and Raleigh been closed for several months?

When is the Interstate 40 link to U.S. 17 scheduled to be completed? Is the project funded?
