Capital Boulevard North Big Ideas Survey

Welcome to the Big Ideas phase of the Capital Boulevard North Corridor Study. Your input is valuable in helping us make decisions for how Capital Blvd. looks and functions in the future. Thank you for your participation!

This first question focuses on potential lane changes along Capital Blvd. Consider how Capital Blvd. currently looks and compare it to the three options below.

Capital Blvd between I-440 and Louisburg currently has four lanes in each direction and, in most places, there are sidewalks on both sides.

The existing cross-section for Capital Boulevard between I-440 and Louisburg Road has four lanes in each direction, and in most places there are sidewalks on both sides. 

Concept Section 1

  • Sets aside space for a new lane to be constructed along the median; the lane along the curb would be converted to a semi-exclusive bus lane
  • Cars would be allowed to use the bus lane to make turns but could not use it to travel along Capital Boulevard
  • Bus service in the semi-exclusive lane would be more reliable than existing bus service
  • Widens the sidewalk on the west side to 12 feet
  • Wider than the existing section and the same width as Concept Section 2

 

Concept Section 2

  • Sets aside space for a new lane next to the median; this lane could be constructed to provide a dedicated bus lane
  • Other vehicles would not be allowed to use the bus lane
  • Bus service in the dedicated lane would be more reliable than existing service and the service provided in the semi-exclusive lane in Concept Section 1
  • Widens the sidewalk on the west side to 12 feet
  • Wider street than the existing section; the same width as Concept Section 1 

 

Concept Section 3

  • Sets aside room for a dedicated bus lane along the median
  • Bus service in the dedicated lane would be more reliable than existing service and the service provided in the semi-exclusive lane in Concept Section 1
  • Widens sidewalk on the west side to 12 feet
  • Provides extra medians that separate the inner lanes from the outer lanes
  • Inner lanes are not open to driveways and have fewer traffic signals
  • Outer lanes have driveway openings and vehicles have more traffic signals
  • Can be more comfortable for pedestrians and encourage a more urban type of development
  • Requires the widest roadway of the three concepts
