The NCDOT Complete 540 project, spanning multiple counties in North Carolina (Wake and Johnston), is part of the NCDOT State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The three project segments included in Complete 540 are R-2721, R-2828, and R-2829. These segments extend from the NC 55 Holly Springs Bypass to I-40 near the US 70 Clayton Bypass (Southern Wake Freeway) and then to I-495/US 64/US 264 Knightdale Bypass.
Our Geotechnical Engineering team has provided services for the R-2829 segment of this project. Our team’s work included a preliminary geotechnical field investigation and inventory reports for 13 miles of the proposed NC 540 alignment. This geotechnical field investigation and inventory reporting also included eight associated bridge structures. Our geotechnical services went from I-540 to Quarry Road, east of Garner, North Carolina.
