Maywood Avenue showing people have to walk in street due to no sidewalk.


Maywood Avenue Sidewalk Project

We are dedicated to improving pedestrian connectivity in Raleigh.

We are installing a sidewalk;

  • On the north side of Maywood Avenue from South Saunders Street to Summit Avenue; 
  • One on the south side of Maywood Avenue from South Saunders Street to Lake Wheeler Road; and, 
  • On Lake Wheeler Road from Maywood Street to the Walnut Creek Greenway at Centennial Parkway.

Adjustments to the sidewalk width and setback may be included in the final design to avoid significant impacts in certain areas as needed and determined by our Engineering staff.

This is a Capital Improvement Project (CIP). Sidewalks are selected based on a prioritization methodology that includes the City’s Pedestrian Plan, pedestrian crashes, street classification, household income, speed limit, age of population, density and proximity to parks, schools, government facilities, shopping, bus stops, libraries, hospitals, museums and sports facilities. 

Design work started on this project in 2015 but was put on hold in 2016 for lack of funds. Funding for this project was made possible as a result of the 2013 and 2017 Bond.
