Six Forks Road project back on track after delays

After extensive delays due in part to rising real estate and construction costs, the City of Raleigh’s Six Forks Road improvement project is getting back on track with a new design and a new budget. At a meeting on February 20, 2024, the Raleigh City Council unanimously approved a scaled-back version of the original road project. The new design will include widening Six Forks Road to six lanes and adding eight-foot-wide multi-use paths along both sides of the road from Rowan Street to Millbrook Road, among other changes. The driving lanes will be ten feet wide. The City is working on new design plans that will provide more information about the project.

The original plan for this project included widening Six Forks and adding separate bike lanes and sidewalks on both sides of the road from Rowan Street to Lynn Road. Even though the new design is less extensive than the original plan, it will still have significant impacts on landowners along Six Forks from Rowan to Millbrook, and it will still require the acquisition of a significant amount of private property. If you have questions about this project or how it might impact your property, please feel free to contact us.
