NCDOT is requesting public input to the widening of Glenwood Ave/US 70 from I-540 to Hilburn.
Public meeting: Monday, July 22, 4-7pm
Embassy Suites, 8001 Arco Corporate Drive, Raleigh, 27617
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
