Study Background

Improvements are needed to the U.S. 401 corridor to accommodate current and future travel and growth. The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) is conducting a corridor study of approximately 19 miles of U.S. 401 from Banks Road in Wake County through the Town of Fuquay-Varina to the N.C. 210 and U.S. 421 intersection near the Town of Lillington in Harnett County; and about seven miles for the future U.S. 401. During the second round of public engagement in the Fall of 2021, public input helped to develop potential improvements to the existing U.S. 401, as well as provided input on initial alignment options for the Future U.S. 401. The results from these efforts can be found on the project website.

In March of 2022, following a presentation on an initial assessment of five U.S. 401 alternative alignments, the CAMPO Executive Board gave direction to continue with analysis of three (3) alternatives with the least potential impacts. Having completed the additional analysis, the study’s project team will present information about the three alternatives at the upcoming public meetings to seek public input. This same information can be found on the project website.
