Crossroads for Innovation

As the transportation hub of the triangle, Morrisville is called the “crossroads for innovation”. Raleigh-Durham International Airport, major interstates and rail put Morrisville in the center of a market reach of more than half the U.S population via road, and the world by air. Morrisville’s corridor access allows employers to “fish in all workforce ponds” in the Triangle.


I-40 is the closest Interstate to Morrisville, and is accessible by driving a few miles northeast on Aviation Parkway or Airport Road.

I-540 is located in west Morrisville and also connects to I-40, providing a direct route to North Raleigh, Raleigh-Durham International Airport and eastern Wake County. The completed portion south of I-40 in Morrisville is called the Triangle Expressway.

NC 54, also called Chapel Hill Road, connects Morrisville to Cary to the south and Research Triangle Park to the north.


Morrisville is the next door neighbor to Raleigh-Durham International Airport, which is located in northwestern Wake County on I-40. The airport features eight major airlines that directly reach 45 cities, as well as daily non-stop flights to both London and Paris. It also offers state-of-the-art cargo facilities, as well as housing businesses offering corporate plane services.


Morrisville is conveniently located near Amtrak passenger train terminals in Cary and Raleigh.

Go Triangle operates buses that serve the region and connect to municipal bus systems in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.
