Airport Boulevard is an arterial thoroughfare running through northwestern Wake County, serving as one of two major roads connecting to the Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
Airport Boulevard currently exists in two segments, beginning at Davis Drive in Morrisville and traveling due northeast. The four-lane median divided roadway travels through a residential area, ending at a dead end east of Garden Square Lane no less than half a mile away. A five-lane undivided segment begins at NC 54 and turns to the north, passing through a commercial area. This longer segment has major junctions with McCrimmon Parkway and Perimeter Park Drive before turning to the west. The roadway then has an interchange with I-40 and another with Aviation Parkway, after which it serves as the main thoroughfare connecting to both terminals or the airport as well as airport parking.
