The state’s plans for the project were first unveiled in 2014, but have since been changed to reflect the inclusion of a bike and pedestrian path as requested by Fayetteville planners.
Pedestrians and cyclists in west Fayetteville will eventually have a safe way to cross Interstate 49, but it won’t come without a significant cost.
Fayetteville residents have until Friday, April 4 to comment on the state’s proposed plans for improvements to the I-540 interchanges at Wedington Drive and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
State officials will not build a roundabout as part of upcoming improvements to the Wedington Drive interchange on Interstate 540 in west Fayetteville.
A public meeting is scheduled from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, March 20 in the cafeteria at Asbell Elementary School, 1500 N. Sang Ave.
