Wake County Roads

       Welcome to
Wake County Roads!

The capital county of North Carolina, Wake County boasts nearly 2,500 miles of state-maintained roads and highways, the most of any of the state's 100 counties. The county includes nearly 70 miles of Interstate highway, the state's first modern toll road, and much more.

The goal of Wake County Roads is to entertain, inform, and give some context into the road system of Wake County. How did Falls of Neuse Road get its name? Were there places named Leesville, Millbrook and Six Forks? What exactly is Jones Sausage?

Select a road using the menus to the left, and enjoy the ride!
