Location: Raleigh, NC
Client: Raleigh Durham Roadbuilders, LLC

The Western Wake Freeway project is a new multi-lane toll facility with concrete pavement and more than 30 new bridges in western Wake County south of I-40 in Holly Springs.

The new 12.6 mile limited-access roadway includes interchange access at NC 55 at Green Level Road, US 64, Old US 1, US 1 and ending at the NC 55 Bypass at Holly Springs.

As part of the Raleigh Durham Roadbuilders’ team, Volkert provided quality assurance, quality control, and materials testing services for this design-build project.

Challenges during this project included the navigation of construction inspection and documentation requirements for the first toll road project in the state of North Carolina and transitioning from typical line and grade stakes to a stakeless construction project.
