    Join us help with trail work in Umstead State Park to help Umstead State Park make the trails more environmental friendly.

    We will be working on 2 trail reroutes. The Company Mill pedestrian trail and Cedar Ridge multi-use trails. The reroutes will enable the trails to have less erosion and require less maintenance. We will also be revegetating portions of new trail sections with native grass seed mixes.

    Bring: Drinking water and snacks. Sunscreen, hat, sturdy shoes, long pants, rain jacket if raining.

    We supply: work gloves, tools.  If you have your own gloves and tools, that would be helpful.

    • Embassy Suites, 8001 Arco Corporate Drive, Raleigh, 27617

    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

    https://publicinput.com/us70-I-540-hilburn

    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 

    More information and to provide public input
