Design Plans Public Meeting
The City of Raleigh held a public meeting regarding proposed roadway improvements to Lumley-Westgate-Ebenezer Church Roads. The project will complete a bicycling path from Brier Creek to Umstead Park along Lumley Road, Westgate Road, Ebenezer Church Road, and Gralyn Drive. The project will also fill in some gaps in the existing sidewalk system along Westgate Road.
The City of Raleigh and our engineering design consultant, Stewart, Inc., have completed the design plans for the project. The public meeting was held in a workshop environment with the design consultant and City staff on hand to answer questions and receive comments from the surrounding community.
If you were unable to attend the public meeting the presentation boards, comments sheet, and other meeting documents are linked below. Please submit all comments by Sept. 3.

In 2009, the City of Raleigh adopted a Comprehensive Bicycle Plan that identifies existing bicycle needs and deficiencies, recommends more than 440 miles of new bicycle infrastructure, and provides a program of action for addressing the immediate and long-term needs for bicyclists and bicycle facilities.
The Comprehensive Pedestrian Plan was adopted by City Council on January 2, 2013. The Pedestrian Plan provides strategies for enhancing Raleigh's transportation system to promote walkability throughout the City. The plan assesses the existing facilities, policies, plans, and programs that affect pedestrian mobility and provides recommendations for improvements.
