The preliminary design phase is underway, and the first public meeting is scheduled for Fall 2017.


This project will widen and rehabilitate Tryon Road between Lake Wheeler Road and Par Drive, connecting with the previously widened sections.

The improved corridor will feature a 4-lane, divided curb and gutter roadway with:

  • Bike lanes
  • Turn lanes
  • Sidewalks

This section of Tryon Road is the last remaining section planned for widening. The City of Raleigh previously widened the section of Tryon Road to the west of this project and recently NCDOT replaced the bridge at the eastern end of the project and realigned the roadway through the Renaissance Park area.
