We are proposing to make improvements to Blount Street, Person Street, and a section of Wake Forest Road.
Things we are considering include:
- Enhancing the bike lanes along the corridor;
- Adding traffic calming measure in some areas;
- Installing two roundabouts, one at Delway Street and Person Street and the other at Wake Forest Road and Automotive Way; and,
- Converting Blount Street and Person Street from their current one-way operation into two streets with two-way traffic. This new traffic pattern will only be between Edenton Street and Wake Forest Road.
Our goal is to make the Blount Street and Person Street corridor safe and comfortable for all users. We call this a complete Street.
What are Complete Streets?
Complete Streets accommodate all types of transportation, allowing bicyclists, pedestrians, transit users, vehicles, commercial and emergency vehicles to safely navigating City streets.
