Adding bicycle facilities on Lakewood Avenue between Fayetteville Street and Duke Street will connect the proposed bicycle facilities on Fayetteville Street and the existing bicycle lanes on Blackwell Street and University Drive, as well as improve access to the American Tobacco Trail.
The pavement width along this corridor varies between 27 and 44 feet. No changes to the existing curb are proposed as part of this project.
This bicycle improvement project is funded by a Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program Grant through NCDOT.
The proposed improvements can be seen below, and the full design here. Comments received during the September 2018 public meeting and online comment period will be incorporated where appropriate. The re-striping work is expected to begin Fall 2023 and end Summer 2024.
