Some Not Pleased With New Highway 64 Bypass

— The

Highway 64 Bypass

around Knightdale opened last week and now complaints are starting to come in.

Drivers heading toward Raleigh from the eastern part of the state said they cannot figure out how to get into downtown Knightdale.

Engineers say tying up loose ends on the project has blocked access to old Highway 64.

Detour routes are now better-marked. Crews plan to have the whole project finished in 45 days.
