Transportation Update: I-440 Improvement Project
I-440 Improvement Project Impacts Travel to Campus
Due to the current I-440 improvement project, the ramp from I-440 West to eastbound Wade Avenue is now closed through 2021. A signed detour is in place to lead drivers past Wade Avenue to the Hillsborough Street exit, back onto eastbound I-440, to eastbound Wade Avenue. This detour may impact travel to Main or Centennial Campus, and travel should be planned accordingly. Additional information about the I-440 project as well as other campus transportation impacts is available on the NC State Transportation website.
