Cary Parkway to undergo improvements

Posted March 9, 2009

— Cary is moving forward this week with improvements on a 6.2-mile stretch of the Cary Parkway.

The town is repaving a 1.2-mile section of road from Tryon Road to Holly Springs Road and a 5-mile section of Southwest Cary Parkway from High House Road to Kildaire Farm Road.

The town is also installing new traffic signal detection devices and pavement markings to help improve travel along the main corridor.

The project is expected to be complete in the fall.

Beginning Tuesday, crews will periodically close lanes, but at least one lane will remain open in each direction at all times, the town said in a news release Monday.

    Both stretches of road seem fine to me. Why is Cary wasting money fixing roads that ain't broke.

    Glad to see Cary is spending money on highways. Raleigh needs to this too instead of wasting money on buses and trains that nobody uses.

    How about fixing some of the traffic cameras. I sit at red lights and never see any traffic go through the intersection then when it finally turns green and then on to the next and watch empty intersesections all the while looking at cameras looking at us sit there!!!!!!

    They are not fixing the part of Tryon and Cary Parkway that was just completed. They are fixing Cary Parkway in the other direction. The part that had NO work done to it....

    Hey Z Man, Tryon and Yates Mill Pond is not in Cary. Next time you want to call something out like that, be sure to get your facts correct....

    The section near Tryon isn't that old but already needs repaving? Why do a job right the first time when you can do it again a few years later *and* have people thank you for it?

    I often drive between Kildaire and High House and it's in bad shape. Glad they're fixing it.

    don't they need to re-re-do the section from high house to 54?

    They could take some of the orange barrels from Tryon/Yates Mill Pond intersection on which no progress has been made in the last 6 months!

    Good deal ... I guess they cancel the new signs renaming it "Cary Goat Path"
