NCDOT to host US 1/Capital Boulevard Improvements public meeting & public hearing June 21

Wednesday, June 7, 2023 - 9:11am

The NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will host a combined open house public meeting and public hearing for the proposed Capital Boulevard North Upgrade (Raleigh to Wake Forest)​ improvements Wednesday, June 21, at Living Word Family Church, 10520 Star Road. The public meeting is scheduled from 4-6:30 p.m. with the public hearing to follow at 7 p.m.

NCDOT proposes to convert US 1/Capital Boulevard to a controlled access highway from I-540 in Raleigh to Purnell Road (S.R. 1909) / Harris Road (S.R. 1931) in Wake Forest. A controlled-access highway is one on which access is provided only via ramps at interchanges. Some cross-streets will be grade-separated, and no driveway connections will be allowed.

The purpose of the project is to reduce traffic congestion and improve travel times and maintain regional mobility and local connectivity.

The June 21 public meeting is intended to inform the public of the proposed project and gather input on the proposed design. The public hearing will include an explanation of the recommended alternatives, land acquisition, relocation requirements, and other related procedures. Residents will have the opportunity to comment. The public hearing will be recorded, and a written transcript will be prepared.

NCDOT representatives will be available to answer questions and receive comments. The comments and information received will be taken into consideration as work on the project develops.

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, NCDOT will provide auxiliary aids and services for disabled persons who wish to participate in this meeting. Persons requiring these services are urged to contact Diane Wilson at 919-707-6073 or [email protected] as early as possible.
