They could, but I don't think they're going to do it. Building a toll lane(s)? I could see that.

Yeah, Iím inclined to agree. I canít see tolling that short stretch. Toll lanes are far more likely and I think NCDOT has even floated that idea in recent years. I donít know if itís still on their radar though. :hmm:

I would agree that it's unlikely they would toll the existing stretch.  My point was to show that, under current Federal law, they technically could instate tolls on that segment under the conditions I specified.

NCDOT isn't going to do that.  Nothing is going to happen to I-540 that currently exist.

The Ghostbuster:
Are there construction and completion dates for when the entire 540 beltway will be completed?

The section from US 401 to I-40/Future I-42 should be under contract by mid 2019, so 2022 is a reasonable guess for completion. The eastern section, from I-40/Future I-42 to US 64/Future I-87, is not scheduled for construction until FY 2027. NCDOT's web site for the project is here:
