Franklin County is pushing the state to widen Highway 401 from Louisburg to Raleigh. A surge in development has put a squeeze on a 14-mile stretch that remains two lanes. Leaders say the road is heavily traveled and dangerous.
The DOT is also hearing pleas to widen
in Granville County, which is another major route into northern Wake County.
