Project Description


The City is moving towards construction of project ST-264, Fayetteville Road Improvements.
The project has been updated to incorporate the former ST-254 Fayetteville/Buxton/Riddle Realignment Project, in order to more effectively utilize the City's resources and provide a more coordinated and less disruptive construction process.  

The Fayetteville Road Improvements Project will consist of widening and enhancing Fayetteville Road from Barbee Road to Cornwallis Road.  The Fayetteville/Buxton/Riddle Road Realignment Project consists of converting the junction of Buxton and Riddle Roads to a traditional intersection.  We are excited about this work and hope it will provide a welcomed improvement to the neighborhood and the traveling community. 

​Project Schedule


The anticipated completion of this project is currently June 2021.  However, the contractor is entitled to rain delays; when it is too wet to work; and those days are added into the completion time.  This is an estimated date of completion, since the weather conditions impact the project schedule.

The Notice to Proceed date was March 4, 2019.  The contractor has 530 calendar days to substantially complete the project and upon NTP the estimated completion date was August 15, 2020.


Project Status


Construction is underway & is scheduled to be complete in June 2021.  This is a City funded project.

East Cornwallis Road will be detoured from the intersection of Fayetteville Road to Apex Highway 55 via MLK Jr. Parkway. This detour will be in place until approximately April 14th. Please see the road diagram below and plan accordingly.

The American Tobacco Trail is being detoured to the sidewalk on the east side of Fayetteville Rd between Riddle Rd and Martin Luther King Parkway due to road construction and the temporary closure of Cornwallis Rd. The trail detour will remain in place through April 30th. Please see the trail diagram below and plan accordingly.

For detailed detour plans, see the links under PROJECT INFORMATION to the right.
