Prosperity Village Northwest Arc Thoroughfare Extension
Prosperity Village Northwest Arc Thoroughfare Extension
This two-phase project will complete the northwest section of roadway from the Prosperity Village Plan from proposed I-485 to existing Prosperity Church Road.

What's happened? Individual meetings and two public workshops were held in 2011 and 2012.  Click here to view the preferred alternative. Additionally, an Environmental Assessment was prepared and shared at the March 26, 2013 public hearing.  A transcript is available by contacting Dan Leaver. (see contact info below) The "Finding of No Significant Impact" (FONSI) was received in late June and the project was divided into two phases (Phase A and B). The City received authorization from NCDOT in late September and began real estate acquisition.

What's next?  Real estate acquisition continues. Construction for Phase A should begin by fall 2014. Construction for Phase B is expected to begin in early 2015.

A Thoroughfare and Area Plan Project

This two-phase project will complete the northwest section of roadway from the Prosperity Village Plan from proposed I-485 to existing Prosperity Church Road. This project has been divided into two phases and will provide a connection that will serve as an integral part of the roadway system after I-485 is built.

Phase A will build relocated Prosperity Church Road north of I-485 to Ridge Road Extension and Ridge Road Extension to Prosperity Church Road.

Phase B will build the remainder of relocated Prosperity Church Road north of Ridge Road and provide improvements along existing Prosperity Church Road. Additionally, street and bike connections to adjacent neighborhoods will be made. 

Objectives:

  • Provide a connection that will serve as an integral part of the roadway system after I-485 is built.
  • Provide an east/west connection that connects Ridge Road to existing Prosperity Church Road.
  • Relieve congestion of future ramps of I-485.
  • Continue implementation of the Prosperity Village Plan.
This project has received STP-DA (Surface Transportation Program – Direct Attributable) funding to pay for part of the project.  Other funding will come from City bonds.

The project limits for the Northwest Arc are from the proposed I-485 Interchange to existing Prosperity Church Road between Prosperity Ridge Road and Eastfield Road. The exact location is being determined through the Planning and NEPA process (see below for more information on the NEPA Process).
