Dead end of Winchester Drive

Transit, Streets, and Sidewalks

Winchester Drive Extension Project

Improving mobility and connectivity for pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular traffic

The City is extending Winchester Drive. 

The project will extend Winchester Drive from the Kodiak Drive intersection and connect to the existing Winchester dead end east of Panther Branch Drive. We will also install a new intersection connection from Winchester Drive to Panther Branch Drive.

The roadway section will include sidewalks, street trees, and streetlights on both sides of Winchester Drive. 

This extension will eliminate an existing gap along Winchester Drive, between Kodiak Drive and Paula Ann Court allowing for improved local access and connectivity, and should not require any new ROW from property owners.

History

The project is shown in NCDOT’s 2020-2029 State Transportation Improvement Program as part of the planned improvements to US 70 (Glenwood Avenue) from I-540 to Hilburn Drive (STIP Project U-2823), which includes connecting the segmented portions of Winchester Drive from Ebenezer Church Road to Fleetwood Drive.

The City of Raleigh and a private developer began working on a Cost Share Agreement in 2019 to extend Winchester Drive as part of the development at the northeast corner of Kodiak Drive and Winchester Drive. The agreement was executed in November of 2020.
