NCDOT began a study to improve Ten-Ten Road from Apex Peakway in Apex to Kildaire Farm Road in Cary in mid-2016. Prior to the start of this planning and design effort, this corridor was identified for widening in the currently adopted Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (CAMPO) 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP).  The corridor was also identified in local municipal plans for the Towns of Apex and Cary.

Town of Cary 2040 Community Plan (2017)

The project team has begun a number of technical environmental studies, including a Natural Resources Report and Community Studies report, as well as development of functional designs for two alternatives.

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.
