Current Activity

A public meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 7, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Carolina Pines Community Center, at 2305 Lake Wheeler Road. At this meeting, the City’s design consultant and City staff will be on hand to discuss the preliminary 25 percent plans and answer project related questions and take public comments before continuing the design process.

For those unable to attend the meeting a copy of the public meeting map, handout, and comment sheet will be available online after the meeting.


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; 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.
