The Chamber calendar features Chamber events and those of the Town of Fuquay-Varina, the Fuquay-Varina Arts Council, and the Fuquay-Varina Downtown Association. Space permitting, events sponsored by civic groups and non-profit organizations that are members of the Chamber will also be included.
Thank you, to our co-host, NC Turnpike Authority & DOT for assisting us with organizing this presentation. This is the latest offering in a series hosted by the Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce to present information and/or professional development opportunities to our members on a variety of topics. Mark your calendars, and Let’s Do Lunch!
Join us as we host Dennis Jernigan, P.E., Director of Highway Operations with the NC Turnpike Authority in charge of construction for the Complete 540 project. Dennis will present an overview of the NC Turnpike Authority, and then talk about the Complete 540 project and current construction activities. The Complete 540 project will extend the Triangle Expressway from the NC 55 Bypass in Apex to US 64/US 264 (I-87) in Knightdale, completing the 540 Outer Loop around the greater Raleigh area.
The project will be completed in two phases: Phase 1, currently under construction, is the western portion of the project between NC 55 Bypass in Apex and I-40 near the Wake/Johnston County line. Phase 2 is the eastern portion of the project between I-40 and US 64/US 264 Bypass (I-87) in Knightdale and a construction contract is projected to be awarded no later than 2029.
