Downtown Raleigh parking, the thing everyone loves to hate. Well, it’s getting some hate lately as businesses downtown wonder where their employees are going to park. We present some numbers and some of the solutions under discussion.
Each year the city repaves/resurfaces some of its more than 1,000 miles of streets. During that process, they also consider whether to add bicycle lanes. This year, 16 of the streets will get a new section of bike lane.
The contractor plans to begin installing girders for the new bridge that will carry Capital Boulevard traffic over Peace Street. It is tentatively scheduled to take three nights to set the girders.
Dortch Street will close starting Jan. 14. The 21-day closure will require an offsite detour using Capital Boulevard, North West Street and the southbound Capital Boulevard ramp off Wade Avenue, depending on which direction of Dortch Street a driver is going.
A slight increase in the toll rate for the Triangle Expressway will take effect Monday, Jan. 1, as required by the bond covenant created for the funding of the highway.

If you drive on the Wade Avenue bridge over Capital Boulevard, heads up: it’s closed this weekend (June 16-18) for some of the work taking place.
