Transit, Streets, and Sidewalks

Wade Avenue Sidewalk Project

We are dedicated to improving pedestrian connectivity in Raleigh.

We are installing a sidewalk along Wade Avenue: between the existing sidewalk at Hobson Court and the existing sidewalk at Oberlin Court Apartments, and on the east side of Wake Forest Road from south of East Whitaker Mill Road to north of Hodges Street.

* The planned section on Wade Avenue between Daniels Street and Woodburn Road has been removed to be included in a NCDOT safety project.

History

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.
