Milburnie Road Updates Hardimont Road Updates

To improve safety for all users, the City of Raleigh continues to upgrade bicycle lanes by improving pavement markings, adding flexible delineators and removing parking in bike lanes in key bicycle corridors.

The addition of flexible delineators to the bike lanes on streets listed below will help to slow vehicular traffic and improve safety for all users.

In addition to upgrading bike lanes, a new Citrix Cycle station is being considered for installation at Gateway Plaza on Crabtree Blvd. These additional e-bikes would connect residents to 30 other bike share stations in the City.

The below projects were completed summer 2020 for install of bike lanes and flexible delineators:

Information on Flexible Delineators

According to the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) bike lanes with flexible delineators provide these benefits:

  • Dedicates and protects space for bicyclists in order to improve perceived comfort and safety.
  • Prevents double-parking, unlike a bike lane.
  • Low implementation cost by making use of existing pavement.
  • More attractive for bicyclists of all levels and ages.

Milburnie Road Updates

The City of Raleigh has been permitting residents on Milburnie Road to park on the street in order to avoid confusion because the entire street did not have bicycle lanes. With the recent road resurfacing and installation of dedicated bike lanes on the entire Milburnie Road corridor, the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission (BPAC) recommended and the Raleigh City Council unanimously approved the following recommendations at their December 1, 2020 meeting:

  • Removal of all on-street parking in the existing bike lanes on Milburnie Road from Habersham Place to North Peartree Lane
  • Removal of all on-street parking in the new bike lanes on Milburnie Road from North Raleigh Boulevard to Habersham Place

Parking in the bike lanes on Milburnie Road is no longer be permitted. Installation of “No Parking” signs will begin early 2021.
Parking in designated parking spaces between the bike lane and the curb is allowed. 

Hardimont Road Updates

The City of Raleigh recently completed new bicycle lanes on the eastern section of Hardimont Road from Colby Drive to Wake Forest Road. The City is now converting the existing striped shoulder to a dedicated bicycle lane on the western half of Hardimont Road from St. Albans Drive to Colby Drive.  With these bicycle lane updates, the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission (BPAC) recommended and the Raleigh City Council unanimously approved the following recommendations at their December 1, 2020 meeting:

  • Removal of on street parking in the existing striped shoulder on Hardimont Road from Saint Albans Drive to Colby Drive to allow its conversion to a fully functional bike lane in Spring 2021
