Louisburg Road (US 401) Sidewalk project

We are dedicated to making Raleigh a more walkable City!

We’re installing a sidewalk along the west side of Louisburg Road. The project fills in several gaps in sidewalks along the corridor to provide connectivity from Spring Forest Rd to Perry Creek Rd. Pedestrian signals will also be installed at several existing signalized intersections.
