Transit, Streets, and Sidewalks

Lumley-Westgate-Ebenezer Church Roads Bicycle ­& Pedestrian Project

We are dedicated to improving bicycle and pedestrian connectivity in Raleigh.

The proposed project will provide a continuous bicycle path between Brier Creek and Umstead Park, using Lumley Road, Westgate Road, Ebenezer Church Road, and Graylyn Drive. A bicycle path will also connect Leesville Road to this path using Westgate Road between Ebenezer Church Road and Leesville Road. Sidewalks will be replaced where the project impacts them, and some pedestrian connections will be made to multi-use path sections of the project.

    Design

    The improvements will generally include:

    • Some curbs and gutters;
    • Drainage features;
    • Some sidewalks;
    • Separated bike lanes;
    • Multi-use paths; and,
    • Pedestrian signals.

     We have decided to include a right turn lane on northbound Ebenezer Church Road at the intersection of with west gate Road. This section of the project was identified by and is being funded by NCDOT.

    The final design plans are complete. We are submitting them to NCDOT and the City’s Development Services for review. Once reviews are completed we plan to give a brief presentation at the next available City Council meeting.

    History

    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 Jan. 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.
