Winthrop Drive Sidewalk Project

We installed a new sidewalk!

The Winthrop Drive Sidewalk Project is a product of a successful resident-initiated Raleigh Sidewalk Petition. The Raleigh City Council approved the project on May 1, 2018.

We installed a sidewalk on the East side of the street from West Millbrook Road to Sleepy Hollow Drive.

Public Review of Project

The safety and security of our community is our top priority. The City of Raleigh is taking the spread of COVID-19 very seriously and canceled public meetings during this time, including the meeting regarding the Winthrop Drive Sidewalk Project.

Our goal is to keep City street and sidewalk projects on schedule, even in these difficult times. With this goal in mind, we sent letters to the affected property owners along the corridor and posted a short presentation and the project design map online for public review for two weeks.

Public comments and questions are an essential element of the design process; below are the results from the online survey and responses to general comments and questions we received.
