Downtown Bus Facilities Master Plan Survey Available

The City of Raleigh is soliciting public comment in an Online Survey involving plans for new and renovated Downtown Transit Facilities. The projects involve two phases, one associated with the Union Station Multi-Modal Facility, and the other for improvements to the Moore Square Transit Station.

The City and a team of designers has identified priorities for both the new Union Station Facility and renovated Moore Square Transit Station. These priorities are summarized under four main headings.

Downtown Bus Transit Facilities should be:

Accessible – Stations should be well connected to transit opportunities, key destinations, and major trip generators.

Active – The Station should be a vibrant place with uses serving transit riders, visitors, local residents and employees alike.

Comfortable – A station and its surrounding streets and other public space should be a safe and welcoming place to transit riders, neighborhood residents, and local employees.

Legible – The station should be identifiable and inviting, a place that people recognize and hold an image of in their minds.

Results of the survey will assist the project team in developing the short and long-term transit program for Downtown Raleigh.

For more information about the Downtown Bus Facilities Master Plan, visit raleighnc.gov/transit, email Gil Johnson, Project Manager, or call him at 919-744-9363.

NCDOT 40/440 Rebuild Project "Fortify" Information

The project, formerly known as “Crawleigh”, is moving forward with a new name: FORTIFY.

Fortify is not just about rebuilding a road, it’s also about fortifying a community. Enhancing the mobility of our region creates greater opportunities for our citizens – access to jobs, healthcare, education, and the people and places that make our community great. Strong partnerships and community collaboration will help reduce the impact to those who live in, work in, and pass through the capital city during construction.

Our project to fortify two of the Triangle’s busiest roads begins this week, and we want to make sure you know what to expect while construction is under way on this major roadway rebuild project and understand how to get the latest information quickly and easily.

What is Fortify?

The Fortify project involves removing and replacing an 11.5-mile stretch of I-40 and I-440 to address immediate safety concerns. The 30-year-old pavement is cracking and crumbling because of a chemical reaction, called ASR, happening in the road. The reaction is triggered by water mixing with a substance that was used in paving several decades ago.

In addition to rebuilding the road, crews will extend two miles of auxiliary lanes to help manage additional traffic. They will also rehabilitate 14 bridges within the project zone to extend their life by many years.

Project Timeline

The first stage, rebuilding I-440, begins this fall. Crews will replace the section from the I-40/U.S. 64/I-440 interchange, known as “the 40 split,” to just north of the U.S. 64/264 Knightdale Bypass.

• Week of October 28: Nighttime lane closures begin for prep work

• Early December: Daytime lane closures begin

Stage two, daytime lane closures for rebuilding I-40, is scheduled to begin by late 2014, when crews will replace the pavement from U.S. 1/64 all the way to the I-40 split.

The entire projected is scheduled to wrap up by Fall 2016.

Impact to Drivers

More than 100,000 cars travel on the weakened sections of 40 and 440 every day, so the $130 million project is going to impact drivers significantly.

NCDOT is taking steps to minimize that impact, including making a $12 million investment in additional transit, and working with the contractor to keep three lanes open in both directions on I-40 during the majority of construction.

Tools to Keep You Informed

www.fortifync.com The Fortify website, which was built by NCDOT’s Web Services Team, is your one-stop shop for all project-related information. It features maps, details on where to catch alternate transit options and links to live traffic cameras through a partnership with WRAL News. There is even a top 40 playlist of jams to help you through the traffic.

Facebook – We’ve launched a Fortify Facebook page where we’ll share updates on traffic flow and project progress daily, post photos and videos, and engage in conversation with our followers.

Twitter – The project Twitter feed, @FortifyNC, will offer real-time travel information any time of day or night. They're in the process of linking the Twitter feed with TIMS, so whenever an incident occurs within the project area, you’ll get an instant alert on your computer or mobile device. It’s a great way to “know before you go!”

Tumblr – They’ve also created the department’s first Tumblr site, which offers a way to keep up with all online content and conversations about the project in one simple location.

NCDOT is committed to keeping drivers informed every step of the way throughout this massive project to fortify not just a road but the community, as well. For more information on Fortify, visit www.fortifync.com.
