The scheme extends from the eastern end of the Swinford Bypass to east of the Mayo/Roscommon border and bypasses both the town of Charlestown and the village of Carracastle, following a route to the south of the existing N5.
The project comprised of the design, execution and completion of approximately 18.2 km of single carriageway and 5 km of single carriageway slip roads, side roads and link roads.
The N5 Charlestown Bypass forms part of the N5 National Primary route between Westport and Longford. The scheme was officially opened to traffic on November 2, 2007.
