Apex Peakway Southeast Connector


The Apex Peakway is planned to serve as a loop around the Town of Apex. The Southeast Connector project would complete a missing gap in the loop south and east of downtown from NC 55 to Schieffelin Road, and include roadway improvements and renaming of Schieffelin Road to extend Apex Peakway to Center Street. The project would require crossing through the north side of Apex Mobile Estates and impacts to other residential and commercial properties along the route as well as other connecting roadway realignments and changes to existing access. Prioritization of future phases including final design, right of way, and construction will be considered following the outcome of the feasibility study.
