The NCDOT plans to install a few more diverging diamond interchanges in the state in the coming years. Plans for one at Wake Forest Road are causing a bit of a stir. We spoke with the NCDOT about this project. While DDIs are known for improving car congestion, some residents are concerned about how this will impact pedestrians and bicyclists.
The public can still comment on this project. The updated plans will be released this fall with another round of public meetings, so keep an eye out.
