Rolesville Bypass won't be complete until Sept.
Posted June 10, 2014
Rolesville, N.C. — It will likely be several more months until residents see some traffic relief along U.S. Highway 401 in Rolesville, a project engineer for a long-awaited bypass in the area said Tuesday.
Work began on the 6-mile route around the Wake County town's south side three years ago and was expected to be complete in July, but David Conner with the North Carolina Department of Transportation says winter weather and more rock than expected has slowed down construction.
"Work is continuing. Work is progressing," he said. "Right now, final completion is looking like mid- to late September."
Despite the delays, Conner said, the project is still within its $25 million budget.
Between 2000 and 2010, Rolesville quadrupled its population, which has contributed to the congestion.
