We are making improvements to the bike and pedestrian infrastructure along Blue Ridge Road from just north of Trinity Road to Reedy Creek Road.
The Blue Ridge Road Bicycle & Pedestrian Improvement Project is an implementation step of the Blue Ridge Road District Study.
The City is completing the project in two phases. Phase I was the planning and development stage of the project. Phase I of the project included public involvement, which helped to dictate the preliminary plans for the project.
The project is now in phase II. Phase II of the project includes completing final design plans through construction.
The scope of the project includes:
- A 10-foot multi-use path (MUP) on the west side of Blue Ridge Road from approximately 390 feet north of Trinity Road to the northwest quadrant of the westbound on/off-ramps to/from Wade Avenue intersection;
- A 10-foot MUP from the existing six-foot sidewalk along the frontage of the North Carolina Museum of Art extending to the westbound Wade Avenue off-ramp. Pedestrians will then cross Blue Ridge Road and continue south towards a prefabricated pedestrian bridge over Wade Avenue; and,
- A protected intersection at Reedy Creek.
