Downtown Raleigh is easily accessible through the 440-beltline, which borders the city. This can be approached easily from I-40 if traveling from the east or the west. If traveling from the north, I-85 connects directly to I-40, which in turn will take you to the beltline and downtown. Alternatively, from I-85, travelers can transition to US-1 which becomes Capital Blvd. If traveling from the south, I-95 connects directly with I-40 as well.
