This portion of Hillsborough Street is classified as a minor thoroughfare roadway in the City of Raleigh's Comprehensive Transportation Plan and carries an average of 18,600 vehicles per day (2013 ADT).
This project design was funded in the 2013 Capital Improvement Program. The project will improve the usability of the corridor by using a “complete streets” design approach to provide better access for traffic, bicyclists, and pedestrians alike.
In the end, this will provide a fully functional multi-modal corridor, improve safety for motorists and pedestrians, and provide a sustainable solution along this important business district and the northern perimeter of the NC State University campus.
