The Apex Peakway is a loop road around downtown Apex that will eventually run for almost 6 miles. The road is ultimately planned as a four-lane median-divided road; however, it is being constructed in the interim as a two-lane road on a wide right-of-way to allow for widening when needed in the more distant future. It is the only “peakway” in North Carolina, taking its name from Apex’s town motto: “The Peak of Good Living.” Sections of the Apex Peakway are constructed through private development either individually or in partnership with the Town as development occurs.
5.09 miles of the 6.0 mile loop is now complete. The remaining portions will be constructed as development occurs or through the sale of future transportation bonds.
