Parts of the Pullen Road extension now have pavement. The City’s contractor, Carolina Sunrock, installed pavement from Centennial Parkway to Bilyeu Street, but the street is not open to traffic yet.
Crews are now working on the grading operations from the new roundabout toward Western Boulevard for the installation of the new curb and gutter and sidewalks along this section of the new roadway.
This project will extend Pullen Road from Western Boulevard to Centennial Parkway as a 52-foot from back-of-curb to back-of-curb roadway with:
- Bike lanes;
- A six-foot sidewalk on the east side;
- A 10-foot multi-use path on the west side;
- Street trees and street lights on both sides; and,
- 12-inch water main installation.

The City developed a three-party agreement with North Carolina State University and the Catholic Diocese of North Carolina for the purpose of extending Pullen Road from Western Boulevard to Centennial Parkway. This street extension is consistent with the City’s 2030 Comprehensive Plan and will help improve safety and congestion along Western Boulevard. The project proposes to construct a three-lane curb and gutter section with medians, sidewalks, bike lanes, street trees, and street lights. Upon completion, street improvements would be maintained by the City.
