Last segment of I-295 to begin construction in August

By Staff Report, posted 4 months ago

The North Carolina Department of Transportation awarded a $151.8 million contract to Branch Civil Inc. to begin construction for the final segment of the I-295 Fayetteville Outer Loop in August. 

This portion of I-295 will stretch five miles in Cumberland County from Camden Road near Hope Mills and Raeford Road. When completed, the final segment will consist of four lanes with medians and interchanges with bridges and on and off ramps.

“As part of this contract, an exit will be built at Camden Road, southwest of Jack Britt High School, and another exit will be built on a realigned Strickland Bridge Road, south of Century Circle,” stated in a press release. 

Construction is expected to be finished by the summer of 2026. 

The other I-295 segment under construction stretches from the future Camden Road interchange to I-95 near the Robeson-Cumberland County line. 

This will widen I-95 from four lanes to eight lanes and is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.
