Red Route http://wunc.org en Lawmakers Moving To Revive Study Of Red Route For 540 Loop http://wunc.org/post/lawmakers-moving-revive-study-red-route-540-loop <p>State lawmakers in the Senate have tentatively passed a<a href="#"> bill</a> that would revive a federal study of a proposed section of the 540 Outer Loop highway across Wake County. Back in 2011, Garner residents convinced lawmakers to pass a bill that banned studying what's called the Red Route. It's a proposed part of the Outer Loop that would have required bulldozing parks and neighborhoods in Garner. Local leaders favor what's known as the Orange Route, but that would extend through wetlands that are home to an endangered mollusk.
