The Fayetteville Outer Loop is an extensive, multi-year transportation project designed to improve traffic flow in North Carolina’s sixth-largest city, which is home to Fort Bragg, one of the U.S. Army’s largest installations.

The primary goal of the ambitious roadway construction project is to relieve traffic congestion in the city and spur economic growth. “There is no easy entry into Fayetteville,” says Jason Salisbury, resident engineer for the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT). Construction of the interstate-grade bypass around the western side of Fayetteville will eliminate that problem, he says.

By the Editors of Construction Today

One of the biggest trends sweeping urban landscapes all across North America is making downtown areas more pedestrian-friendly. Dubbed “pedestrianization,” this school of urban planning has been utilized to redevelop city neighborhoods to promote more foot traffic and create spaces where people can gather. According to the proponents of this school of thought, pedestrian-friendly areas promote better health and fitness through walking or bike riding, enhance economic opportunities by creating more foot traffic around local businesses and reduce pollution by encouraging city-dwellers to leave their cars parked to complete their daily activities.
