09/12/10 97 W, 1 I - + 4 - 4 Remaking Crabtree

Good article from Midtown Raleigh News on the city's plans on remaking the roads around Crabtree Valley Mall. They suck, and this exceptionally interesting report tells how they could be made better. Notable highlights are the appendix design maps, and hilarious comments from survey participants.

Highlights of the proposal include extending Crabtree Valley Avenue from Creedmoor to a new Beltline exchange, and routing Ridge Road from the Beltline bridge to Glenwood Avenue. Will be hell during construction, of course.

Click once or twice to enlarge this rendering of what everything would look like by 2035.

I read the proposal and one underlining comment I can make is each plan increases the visual pollution of the area and only complicates navigation through the area. I favor plan C, tunnel. Create a Glenwood Express under the existing Glenwood Avenue.
