For any locals that want a good view of NC-540 construction, take a ride over to the Fanny Brown Rd. overpass. It has a really good vantage point in both directions. Also drove past the future Holly Springs Rd. interchange. The area is unrecognizable with the clear cutting of all the trees. Don't know how well a diverging diamond is going to work here given the thru traffic volumes on Holly Springs Rd. and the relocated Kildaire Farm Rd. intersection being just to the north.
Do not live in that area but I can imagine how far it has came when looking at this.

Red is phase 1 movements guessed by me.

Blue is phase 2 movements.

Does anybody have a link that shows the signage plans of the southern extension of 540?

Btw, as seen in Q&A 13, this section will be paved with asphalt and not concrete.

Yw.

Now I just wonder what's gonna happen with all the traffic coming from I-40 east wanting to jump on US-70 east. I feel like a full closure will probably be needed and a lot of traffic uses that ramp.

Here are some mediocre photos of the interchange going eastbound from I-40 to US-70.

Given how it looks at I-40, I was honestly under the impression it was further along than that.

Wild idea:  Maybe this section of 540 should be co-signed with I-42?

Hard Pass. Also, NC 540 will be a toll road here.

Does anyone know what happened to Rick Williamson?  I check his profile for videos regarding the NC 540 project, but his profile and videos are no longer on YouTube.
