New portion of Triangle Expressway to open early

December 19, 2012 10:12:50 AM PST
The third phase of the Triangle Expressway from U.S. Highway 64 in Apex to the N.C.Highway 55 Bypass in Holly Springs will open Thursday at 6 a.m.

The six-mile section is the final section of North Carolina's first toll road.

While the road will be open to traffic, tolls will not be collected from U.S. 64 to N.C. 55 until Jan. 2.

"We are proud to have completed the road ahead of schedule," said Turnpike Authority Director David Joyner. "These three new tolling gantries will not be fully operational until Jan. 2, 2013, but the road is ready so we encourage motorists to begin using it."

Tolling is already in place on the first two sections of the Triangle Expressway. Anyone who uses the first two sections of the road will be charged either via mail or NC Quick Pass account.
