Comments from the May 5, 2011 design public meeting are being reviewed. Where possible, these comments will be incorporated into the project's final construction plans.
A public hearing will be held with the Raleigh City Council to approve construction and authorize assessments and right of way acquisition once project funding has been identified. Advanced notification will be given once a meeting date has been determined.
The project will widen Mitchell Mill Road between Louisburg Road and Forestville Road to a four-lane median-divided curb and gutter section with sidewalks, striped bike lanes and streetlights on both sides. Also included in this project are turn-lane improvements and culvert replacement at the intersection of Mitchell Mill Road and Forestville Road, new traffic signal at Single Leaf Lane and new water main installation to connect existing sections currently installed along the corridor.
