First Phase of Construction on Capital Blvd Bridge Replacement Project Kicks Off Next Month

The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NC DOT) will soon begin construction on the Capital Boulevard Bridge Replacement Project in Raleigh, NC. This major transportation project is expected to bring heavy traffic to downtown Raleigh and will have a major impact on many local residents and property owners.

The goal of this project is to replace the bridges at the Capital Boulevard interchanges at Peace Street and Wade Avenue in Raleigh. Both bridges are more than 60 years old and have been classified as “structurally deficient” by the NC DOT.

Construction on these bridges will be completed in phases, and the first phase kicks off in September on the Wade Avenue interchange.

Officials say that traffic flow at the Wade Avenue interchange is not expected to undergo significant changes. Construction crews will start building the new Wade Avenue ramp alongside the existing one, meaning that traffic should continue to flow normally during this phase of construction.

The real impact is expected to be felt next spring, when construction on the second phase at Peace Street is set to begin. The Peace Street interchange will be completely remodeled with bike lanes, wider sidewalks, and a 14-foot median. Construction on the Peace Street interchange will affect more local property owners in terms of Land Condemnation, and will also involve heavy traffic interruptions in downtown Raleigh.
