— One of the area’s busiest roads will get a makeover.

The State Department of Transportation approved nearly $20 million Thursday to widen part of U.S. 15-501 in Durham.

The extra lanes will reach from Interstate 40 to Garrett Road. The money will also be used to replace two bridges on Garrett Road.
