The Town of Morrisville is proposing to extend Airport Boulevard from its existing terminus at Garden Square Lane to its existing terminus at N.C. 54 (Chapel Hill Road), a distance of approximately 0.8 miles.
The purpose of the proposed project is to improve overall multi-modal traffic mobility on the local roadway network and to enhance connectivity between Davis Drive and Chapel Hill Road. The project begins and ends at established roadways and would improve connectivity of the local roadway network, providing an alternative, direct route between Davis Drive and Chapel Hill Road. By filling a gap in the Airport Boulevard corridor, connectivity to Research Triangle Park, Interstate 40, and RDU International Airport is improved.
Although an environmental study is being completed for the entire length of the project, the project is being developed in two phases.
Phase 1 - Garden Square Lane to Church Street Funded
Phase 2 - Church Street to N.C. 54/Chapel Hill Road Currently Unfunded
The proposed roadway through the entire project would consist of:
Two 12-foot lanes in each direction
A 20-foot raised median
5-foot sidewalks on the north side
A 10-foot multi-use path on the south side
A posted speed limit of 45 mph
The project is being developed with federal funds and will meet the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act.

The adopted planning document for the project area, the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan, identifies the extension of Airport Boulevard from Garden Square Lane to N.C. 54 as a 2035 horizon year project. The Town of Morrisville has received funding for Phase 1 of the project from CAMPO as part of the Locally Administered Projects Program for State Fiscal Year 2022. The Town has entered into an agreement with NCDOT Highway Division 5 to manage planning and design for Phase 1 of the project. Phase 2 is currently unfunded.
This project is listed in the State Transportation Improvement Program as project HL-0033. The Town of Morrisville has received federal funding for construction of Phase 1 through CAMPO, as part of the Locally Administered Projects Program.

RESOURCES FOR PROPERTY OWNERS
Although the N.C. Department of Transportation works to minimize the number of homes and businesses displaced by a road project, it is inevitable, in many cases, that a certain amount of private property is needed.
