The project is in the right-of-way and easement acquisition phase. The City is on schedule to advertise the project for construction bids in the spring of 2019.


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 four-lane, divided curb and gutter roadway with:

  • Bike lanes;
  • Turn lanes; and,
  • 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.
