Glenwood Avenue and Hollyridge street sign

Traffic Upgrades Complete on Glenwood Avenue and Hollyridge Drive

Construction is complete on a traffic signal upgrade at the intersection of Glenwood Avenue and Hollyridge Drive. The upgrades include protected left turn signals on Glenwood Avenue, crosswalks, pedestrian crossing signals, and wheelchair-accessible curb ramps. This project will help make the community safer and easier to access destinations on foot, by transit, or in a car.

In 2022, a pedestrian was killed at this intersection while crossing Glenwood Avenue. The new crosswalk and pedestrian signals give residents the tools to safely cross Glenwood Avenue and access bus stops, shopping centers, restaurants, and neighborhoods.

In the last five years, there have been 32 crashes at this intersection involving left turns from Glenwood Avenue, 17 of which resulted in injury to drivers or passengers. New left turn signals will show drivers a green arrow, indicating it is safe to turn left. This is known as a protected left turn and is expected to prevent left turn crashes in the future. 

Raleigh’s Vision Zero team partnered with the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) to identify this problem and deliver a solution. This project was funded through NCDOT’s Spot Safety program, and was designed and built by NCDOT.
