View Wade & Glenwood repaving in a larger map
NCDOT is preparing to start work this fall on long-awaited, inside-the-Beltline Raleigh repaving jobs that will smooth bumpy rides for a combined 60,000 drivers each day on Glenwood and Wade avenues.
Rea Contracting of Charlotte was awarded a $1.3 million project this week, paid for with federal stimulus funds, to mill and resurface 2.5 miles of Wade Avenue from Faircloth Street to Capital Boulevard, including the ramps from Wade to Glenwood Avenue and Capital Boulevard.
The Wade job could start as soon as Oct. 26 and is to be finished by mid-June 2010. No lanes will be closed during weekday rush hours – 6-9 a.m. and 4-7 p.m. – but traffic backups are likely on this busy road at other times of the day and night.
The same hours will apply – lane closings possible except during rush hour – when C.C. Mangum of Raleigh starts work on an $1.8 million contract to resurface 2.7 miles of Glenwood from Woman’s Club Drive to Wade Avenue.
Mangum has the option to start work as soon as next week, with a mid-June completion date. Construction schedules have not been announced.
