Cary to connect nearly 400 miles of sidewalks

Posted November 8, 2012 11:17 a.m. EST

— The town of Cary will begin construction Tuesday on nine new sections of sidewalk that will fill in gaps to connect existing sidewalks.

The improvement project, which costs $700,000, will add 1.7 miles of sidewalk to the existing 389 miles. It will also include construction of accessible sidewalks and crosswalks for disabled residents.

“It all supports our efforts to make sure Cary offers ‘complete streets’ with safe and comfortable travel for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, motorists, and other users,” project engineer Bob Shultes said in a statement.

The project will be completed by spring. Work will be done during daylight hours, Monday through Saturday, weather permitting.

Locations include:

• Bissett Drive, from Farmington Woods Drive to High Meadow Drive
• 404 W. Chatham St.
• Castle Hayne Drive, from Park Village Drive to White Oak Creek Greenway
• 919 Kildaire Farm Road
• Kildaire Farm Road, from Queesnsferry Road to Glasgow Road
• Queensferry Road, from Dunedin Court to Govan Lane
• Old Apex Road, from Falcone Parkway to West Chatham Street
• Old Apex Road, from High House Road to Murphy Drive
