Project Highlights

NCDOT is studying two concepts to improve Glenwood Avenue / U.S. 70 through the project area:

Concept 1- Upgrade U.S. 70 / Glenwood Avenue to a 6-lane median-divided roadway with Reduced Conflict Intersection elements

The Umstead Coalition is disappointed that the draft version does not acknowledge the collaborative efforts we have made with NCDOT and the City of Raleigh to relocate the Park entrance to Triangle Drive and provide a left-in, right-in at that location.  If this concept is pursued, we need to make sure we have a great entrance and preserve the trees on both sides of our Park-the current concept does NOT do such.

In addition, left turns or straight through may not be allowed at Ebeneezer Church Road to Glenwood Ave (only right turns).

Concept 2- Upgrade U.S. 70 / Glenwood Avenue to an 8-lane median-divided roadway with traditional, full movement intersections
