Highway 64 Bypass Expected To Open Friday

Posted July 5, 2005 3:30 a.m. EDT

— The countdown is on in eastern Wake County. The highly anticipated Highway 64 bypass opens Friday.

The 11-mile road parallels Highway 64 from the Beltline to Wendell.

Thousands of people have complained about being stuck in rush-hour traffic delays every workday, so officials hope the new bypass will help.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for 9 a.m.
