Bike Lane Projects

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

We are installing new bike lanes throughout Raleigh. 

The City's BikeRaleigh program is working to create a network of safe bike lanes throughout the City to enable cyclist of all comfort levels to use their bike as a means of transportation. 

This page lists projects that we are currently working on, as well as ones we have recently completed. (All 2021 projects are complete)
