RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — It’s one of the busiest roads in Raleigh and the North Carolina Department of Transportation says several intersections are horrible.
In fact, the agency gave the Glenwood Avenue an “F” rating.
On Monday, officials are reaching out to the public to try and improve the road.
The options all surround widening the Glenwood Avenue from Hillburn Drive to Interstate 540 near the airport. Right now, the road is four lanes separated down the middle with a grassy median.
The first of two plans would keep it that way, but it would double the number of lanes to eight.
The second plan would make the road look like N.C. Highway 55 in Holly Springs.
Drivers are only able to make right turns from side streets onto the highway on that stretch of N.C. 55. If you need to go straight or make a left turn you have to drive down and U-turn in two left turn lanes.
These kinds of intersections are called “reduced-conflict” because they’re supposed to make traffic flow.
The NCDOT wants to see what drivers think of the designs. They’re holding a public input meeting tonight at Embassy Suites in Brier Creek from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The hotel is located at 8001 Arco Corporate Drive.
