Mitchell Mill Road Widening
Project Type: Road Widening
Affected Counties: Wake
Estimated Cost: $ 9,600,000
The City of Raleigh plans to widen 3.7 miles of Mitchell Mill Road in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The section in question begins at Louisburg Road (US 401) and ends at Forestville Road. Expected improvements include:
- widening Mitchell Mill to a four-lane median-divided road with curb & gutters
- adding sidewalk and bike lanes
- adding streetlights on both sides of the road and turn-lane improvements
- installing a new water main
- and improving the connections at Single Leaf Lane and Caliber Woods Drive, as well as a directional crossover at Neuse Crossing Drive and Longdale Drive
Raleigh is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. With an influx of people setting up residencies and businesses, the area is growing at an astronomical pace. Supporters hope this project will improve traffic flow and safety.
There are some concerns about the potential impacts on the area's infrastructure. This project and other expansions will affect businesses, land, and home owners.
Some residential owners' property values could decrease drastically and business owners could be left in undesirable locations due to this project.
