Lake Wheeler Road Corridor Planning
Lake Wheeler Corridor
In November 2011 staff from the Office of Transportation Planning, Urban Design Center, and Transportation Department conducted a community design workshop for the Lake Wheeler Road Corridor from I-40 to Tryon Road with local business owners and area residents. The purpose of the workshop was to develop are long-range vision for the Lake Wheeler Road Corridor and allow participants to review and discuss various cross-sections alternatives and intersection improvements that would enhance the capacity of the corridor to adequately and safely accommodate pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, and motorists while preserving community character.
Public Comments Requested
The draft Lake Wheeler Road Corridor Study has been released for public review with the following schedule:
- Public Review and Comment Period – November 1, 2013 – November 30, 2013
- Public Hearing to receive comments – Tentatively scheduled for March 2014

The study examined a 1.3-mile section of Lake Wheeler Road between I-40 and Tryon Road and provides an overall strategy for the corridor. The improvements recommended in this study reflect the community’s values with respect to the character of the corridor and a desire to integrate pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users with existing motoring traffic along Lake Wheeler Road. The full recommendations of this corridor study will be considered for funding in the City’s Capital Improvement Program for future design, right-of-way, and construction of the planned improvements.
