East Young Street Sidewalk, Phase 2
The purpose of this project is to improve walkability between Rolesville High School and downtown Rolesville.
This project involves the construction of a sidewalk along East Young Street from Virginia Water Drive to Century Farm Road. The new sidewalk will connect with existing sidewalk on the west side of East Young Street at Virginia Water Drive, then cross the US 401 bypass. After crossing the US 401 bypass, consistent with the greenway plan, a multi-use path will be installed along the east side of East Young Street up to Century Farm Road.
The project has been segmented into a few smaller phases:
- Phase A - sidewalk from Virginia Water Drive to the US 401 Bypass
- Phase B - signalized crosswalks in the intersection of US 401 Bypass and E Young Street and multi-use path to Century Farm Road
The sidewalk from Virginia Water Drive to the bypass is now complete. Project plans for the US 401 bypass pedestrian crossing and multi-use path to Century Farm Road are under review by the NC DOT.
Bidding on the project is expected this spring, with construction anticipated over the summer of 2021. While the hope is to complete the project prior to school restarting in August, some lingering work is likely. Every effort will be made to ensure that impacts to traffic in the area are minimized once school begins.
The contractor has been selected for Phase A, and preliminary work has begun on site. Installation of storm drainage utilities and sidewalk is expected to be completed in early October.
