McCrimmon Parkway Extension
Traffic Alert
As part of the McCrimmon Parkway Extension project, which kicked off in November 2016, lane closures will occur as needed beginning Friday, May 12 through November on NC 54 near McCrimmon Parkway.  Flaggers will be on site directing traffic and closures will occur within the timeframe of Monday - Friday, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm.  Delays are expected, so please plan accordingly.

Following voter approval of the Transportation Bond Referendum in November 2012, the Town of Morrisville has begun work on the McCrimmon Parkway Extension. The Town has partnered with NCDOT on the project in order to leverage state transportation funding with the Town's bond funding, resulting in a two-phase project.  Phase One construction will be administered by the Town, with Phase Two construction being administered by NCDOT. 


Phase I (Town)

  • Extend McCrimmon Parkway east from NC 54 to the exisitng section of McCrimmon Parkway at Perimeter Park Drive as a four lane roadway with sidewalks/multi-use paths on each side and bicycle accommodations
  • Widen McCrimmon Parkway across the railroad tracks near NC 54 to add a left-turn lane and right-turn lane onto NC 54, re-striping the existing eastbound lane to a through lane 
  • Associated intersection improvements on NC 54 and Perimeter Park Drive

Phase II (NCDOT)

  • Construct a new four-lane, median-divided roadway with 8' multi-use paths and 5' bicycle lanes from Airport Boulevard to Aviation Parkway at Evans Road
  • Install a Traffic Signal at the Airport Boulevard/McCrimmon Parkway intersection
  • Associated intersection improvements on Airport Boulevard, Aviation Parkway and Evans Road

Phase II construction requires a detailed environmental review by NCDOT
