Traffic Plan Would Have Raleigh Motorists Driving in Circles
Big changes are in store for Hillsborough Street near North Carolina State University. The way people travel the road is about to shift.Posted — Updated
The $500,000 project is part of a push to make Hillsborough Street a more pedestrian-friendly area. It is scheduled to begin in Spring 2008 and be completed by winter of the same year.
Other roundabouts are planned for Hillsborough Street near the N.C. State Bell Tower and Oberlin Road. The cost to include all roundabouts on Hillsborough Street will run close to $6 million.
City planners also mention that as part of the Hillsborough-Morgan Street plan, they will have to remove an oak tree to the dismay of some people.
The public was invited to view the plans Wednesday at the Avery C. Upchurch Government Complex, at 222 W. Hargett St., starting at 5 p.m. Engineers were also on hand to answer questions about the project.
