Randall Pkwy 75% complete

     
The widening of almost 2 miles of Randall Parkway is now 75 percent complete and still on schedule, despite heavy and consistent rains earlier this summer. The project, which started in December 2012, is expected to be complete by early March 2014. 

Paving is now complete on Randall Parkway and the Gary Shell Cross-City Trail between Independence Boulevard and South Kerr Avenue. This segment of the newly widened road is expected to fully reopen to traffic in mid-October. The section between South Kerr and College Road is currently receiving new curbing, sidewalk and paving along the south side of Randall Parkway.

The Randall Parkway widening project, when complete, will alleviate heavy traffic in the vicinity of Kerr Avenue and College Road and add capacity for future traffic growth along the entire parkway. The project will also extend the Cross-City Trail from just past the Randall pond bridge to Marlboro Drive and add bike lanes on both sides of the road between Collegiate Drive and College Road. The Gary Shell Cross-City Trail will be added to the middle section of Randall, from Marlboro Drive, across Kerr Avenue, and up to Collegiate Drive, when the NC DOT does the Kerr Avenue widening project in 2014. More than half of the Randall project’s $5.6 million budget comes from federal and state monies, with most of the remaining funding coming from the 2006 voter-approved transportation bond.
