Changes coming to main Raleigh road


On Thursday, people can learn more about the plans for the Capital Boulevard corridor from downtown Raleigh to the Beltline.

Commuters that drive on or work near Capital Boulevard every day say the area could use some TLC.

"It's very congested and it's hard to navigate," Raleigh resident Tammi Williams said. "You don't see improved buildings like downtown has all these new structures and things. And it still looks run down as it hasn't improved with the times that Raleigh has. So it just needs some upgrades."

"It really does welcome people to the downtown area," Capital Boulevard business owner Debbie Van Pala said. "It's very important to have it look the best it can."

The City of Raleigh has been holding a series of public meetings to get input on improvements.

Thursday night will be the last meeting. It will be at Meymandi Concert Hall in Raleigh from 6 p.m. 8:30 p.m.

Residents can ask about the proposed high-speed rail line, bike and pedestrian needs, greenways, and the just the economic development around one of Raleigh's main thoroughfares.
