When the 540 “loop” is completed, people will have easier access to all parts of the Triangle Area, instead of only partial access; no more need to access back roads. This partial-toll road can lower commute time by allowing people to avoid traffic pockets and utilize the convenience of a highway without traffic lights. Currently the “loop” is on the Northwest through Northeast side of the Triangle, stopping at Knightdale on the high end and Holly Springs at the lower end. Once fully connected, 540 will swing closer to Garner and Clayton, completing the “loop” and connecting many major areas with one highway. It is anticipated that the value of homes in Fuquay Varina, Garner, and Cary, as well as Knightdale and Wendell, will increase as there will likely be more demand for homes near the loop. On the flip side, buyers will want to know where the proposed 540 will go as certain areas will be closer to 540, potentially creating a negative noise impact. Another thing to consider when buying is where the on and off ramps might go, which could also be unexpectedly closer than expected for some homes. Your REALTOR can assist with navigating you through the 540 highway plan and its impact in various areas.
