Grade Separation Projects Along CSX S-Line Railroad

The NCDOT is proposing to construct grade separated crossings or bridges along the CSX S-line railroad tracks in Wake Forest. The grade separations will use a road or railroad bridge to separate an existing at-grade intersection of a road and railroad. The projects are intended to improve the safety and efficiency of the overall transportation network.

Grade separations are proposed in Wake Forest at Rogers Road (S.R. 2052) and Ligon Mill Road (S.R. 2044).


Rogers Road (S.R. 2052) - STIP Project P-5707

Construct a bridge over the CSX S-line railroad Project Schedule

  • Right of Way in Fiscal Year 2018;

  • Construction in Fiscal Year 2020

Estimated Costs

  • Right of Way $1,890,000;

  • Construction $9,000,000

The project proposes to construct a bridge on Rogers Road (S.R. 2052) over the CSX S-line railroad in the same location as the existing at-grade crossing.

Current plans include an on-site detour during construction.

 

Ligon Mill Road (S.R. 2044) - SPOT Project R150048:

Construct a bridge over the CSX S-line railroad Project Schedule:

  • To be determined based on future funding

The project proposes to construct a bridge on Ligon Mill Road (S.R. 2044) over the CSX S-line railroad. The current design shifts Ligon Mill Road approximately 130 feet south, and provides a new entrance to the Smith Creek neighborhood at Steeple Run Drive.

Current plans allow for the existing at-grade crossing to remain open during construction of the new bridge.
