Default here you go

For referernce: 540 is the pink cross-dashed Rd, and you can see Green Hope School Rd as a northern reference and Highhouse/Green Level Rd West to the south-

Default Detailed Turnpike Maps - Western Wake /540

Here are two NCDOT/TPA map links.

If you look at the far left near the edge of Map 4 of 4 (where it would connect to Map 3 of 4) you can see where there are subdivision roads shown. Those are Panoramic Court, Branton & Redbud in the Reserve.

I included Map 3 so you can see the (Beavers) property which is just south of the Reserve and it's position to that area. Map 3 also shows the Apex/64 area near Jenks, Beaver Creek, etc.

It is a litte tricky in that Highcroft and Hilliard Forest are not shown as subdivisions (not sure why since these were drawn in 2007 WELL after Highcroft was built and Highcroft is still shown as "Bachelor" property and Hilliard is this side of the bold number 545 near Hallock & Hilliard parcels). If you follow the main road arteries off of Green Hope Rd you should be able to get your bearings.

These links are good as you can enlarge them and scroll around the page.
Hope this helps!

CD won't let me post this photo twice, but in another thread, I put up the Wake County Tax map showing the likely location of 540 and its possible proximity to Highcroft and The Reserve.

If you look at the Map I posted above (Number 4 or 4) and cross-reference it to Mike J's photo from IMAPS you can see the mentioned streets in the Reserve as they are shown on Map 4.

The detailed Map 4 of 4 is more specific and shows the actual right-of-ways and how close the project will come to each parcel.

I had heard that I540 would impact areas of The Reserve more so than what people thought, even those in Highcroft. A friend of mine says 540 is scheduled to turn close to the back of Highcroft, closer to the intersection of Tamworth Hill and Highcroft Drive(s). The plans are for 540 to below below ground level of the neighborhood?

I think I posted on this earlier last year. 540 Will be below ground level at the beginning of highcroft(it will go under GHS Rd), even with grade in the middle of highcroft dr, and about 20' above grade near the creek which is about 3/4 down highcroft dr.

Hey, thanks for the post. I missed last year's I guess.

There have been a number of houses recently added to the real estate listings, especially on Tamworth Hill Drive, and I wondered if it had to do with I540 or the economy.

Nosy people are nosing to know. LOL.

This link will provide more information about it than you probably could ever want to know... the one document that is loaded with Topgraphics is the April 2008 Department of the Army 404 Permit (HUGE file).

http://www.ncturnpike.org/projects/Western_Wake/documents.asp

If you can decipher the topographic maps it will show EXACTLY where, how high & low and how close the road and grading will come in every parcel. I think the Resreve is around their parcel reference 15. It is truly a tedious document, but loads of info in it.

The other documents on the page include links for the 2 maps I posted previously as well as Maps 1 & 2, and a bunch of the traffic and revenue studies.

I live in the Ashley Woods subdivision and it looks like the new 540 will be about 1/2 a mile behind my house...I'm slightly concerned, but not too worried about it. Its closer then I would prefer, but I dont think I'll see any noise polution effects.
