Changing Lanes

In an effort to meet traffic growth, the Midtown Raleigh Alliance partnered with the City of Raleigh to conduct a Six Forks corridor study analyzing both a 4-lane and 6-lane option that would break ground in 2019 if adopted. The results came out this past month to help stakeholders compare the two options. Side by side the 6-lane plan is not significantly more expensive and offers several benefits over the 4-lane version, including: incentivizing bus service and significantly increasing capacity to ease congestion. A public hearing will take place this month before the city council takes action.
