NC Turnpike Authority has a great deal of information available regarding planning for NC540 in Southeastern Wake County.

As the Turnpike Authority says, “Please note, these alignments are conceptual and have not been officially selected for the project.”
They note that the corridor is subject to change, as it was created without environmental study.
It is quite possible that environmental considerations will require NC DOT to move the corridor or the highway, but this corridor study is a “must see” for anyone considering purchase in that area of Wake County, North Carolina.
If looking at a home in SE Cary, Apex, Holly Springs, Garner, SE Raleigh, or nearby unincorporated areas of Wake County, this information must be considered by smart home buyers.
