I-85 Widening, Phase 2 (SR 53 to US 129)
The I-85 Widening, Phase 2 corridor improvements will provide relief by widening I-85 from two to three lanes in both directions from SR 53 to just north of US 129. Additional work on the project includes replacing one overpass bridge and six mainline bridges along I-85.
With the I-85 Widening, Phase 1 project on target to open to traffic in mid-2020, we want to leverage the success to advance Phase 2 of that corridor’s improvements. This represents our ability to progress projects forward when there is less or no right-of-way acquisitions and development that could be impacted through project design and construction. The I-85 Widening, Phase 2 project will be delivered and open to traffic four years ahead of the original schedule. The Industry Forum was held on October 23, 2019.
