Spring 2019 Project Update
The Town’s study to develop an overall vision for the Green Level Church Road corridor through the existing Historic District continues to move forward. Staff has met with primary stakeholders in the study area, including representatives of the Green Level Baptist Church and Mr. Mills, a generational land owner in the district.
On September 26, 2018, staff held an open house to begin gathering input from the surrounding neighborhoods and interested residents. More than fifty stakeholders came out to Fire Station #8 to provide their input on the study. The open house format allowed staff and the Town's consultant, SEPI, to educate citizens on the purpose of the study, the historic and environmental significance of the study area and learn about next steps in the planning process. This fall, the project team will use the public's input to work on a draft context-sensitive design for the study corridor, which will be presented at a second public meeting on May 7, 2019.
The Town’s Green Level Historic District has experienced considerable change over the last decade with changes in land ownership, increasing residential development and new school construction. As a result of this growth and based on future traffic projections, the Imagine Cary Community Plan recommended a future four-lane median divided roadway for Green Level Church Rd. through the historic district.
Currently a rural two-lane road, the study will identify and examine context-sensitive design alternatives along this corridor that take into account the community and land uses along the Green Level Church corridor.
The Town initiated the Green Level Church Rd. feasibility study with the consulting firm SEPI in March 2018. The study will develop an overall vision for the corridor and recommend appropriate transportation solutions that can accommodate future transportation and greenway needs, serve motorists, pedestrians and cyclists, and fit the unique historic context of the area.
Project Cost and Schedule
The project will conclude in 2019. There is currently no funding designated for design and construction of the future road improvements.
