McCrimmon Parkway Extension

Updated on 09/11/2019 2:58 PM

Updated Overview 

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 was administered by the Town, with Phase Two construction being administered by NCDOT.

With McCrimmon Parkway Phase One now complete, it provides needed traffic flow and intersection improvements to the area.  Staff continues to work with appropriate agencies to monitor and adjust the signal timing at NC 54 and McCrimmon Parkway.  Click here for some helpful Ways to Get Around the new intersection changes and traffic patterns.McCrimmon Opening UPDATE Cropped
