On Tuesday, April 3, Raleigh City Council adopted a resolution to authorize the proposed improvements to New Hope Church Road.

The City’s design consultant (Ramey Kemp & Associates) is currently working to finalize the construction plans, and the project is expected to advertise for construction bids late summer 2018.

The City of Raleigh held public meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 29, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Green Road Park Community Center, 4201 Green Road. The City’s design consultant and City staff were present to show the 65 percent plans and answer project-related questions and take public comments before finalizing the plan.
