Current Pacific Highway projects under construction are:

- Oxley Highway to Kundabung (completion in 2017);
- Kudabung to Kempsey (completion in 2017); and
- Warrell Creek to Nambucca Heads (completion in 2017).

As of June 2017 , some 459 kilometres of road have been upgraded to four lane divided road– with a further 161 kilometres under construction and the remainder planned or under procurement.

Current major projects with sections in planning and procurement stages include:

- Woolgoolga to Ballina; and
- Coffs Harbour Bypass.

The Coffs Habour Bypass project includes a 14 kilometre motorway standard upgrade of the Pacific Highway from Englands Road in the south and connects with the recently upgraded Sapphire to Woolgoolga section in the north.

In March 2016 Arup was awarded the contract to develop the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and finalise the concept design, while RCA Australia was awarded the contract to carry out the geo-technical investigations for the project. RMS is now progressing towards planning approval.

The NSW Government has committed $200 million to the project, but the entire funding requirement is unknown. The project is still subject to a Business Case assessment, and is included in the Infrastructure Australia Plan.

The NSW Government allocated $5 million to continue planning in the 2017-18 Budget, which is in addition to the $67 million already spent.
