Project BackgroundThe towns of Apex and Cary are working collaboratively to improve Lake Pine Drive from east of Pine Plaza Drive/MacGregor Plaza Drive to the Apex/Cary town limits (northeast of Versailles Drive). The current segment is a two-lane roadway that crosses Williams Creek and runs adjacent to land, that is part of Apex Community Park. The project will widen the roadway to a three-lane section similar to Lake Pine Drive on the Cary side and tie-in to the wider section southwest of the park in Apex. The project will also include connecting the sidewalks on the west side of the road near the park, constructing a 10-foot street-side trail on the east side as part of Cary’s greenway system, and providing a high-visibility crosswalk at Versailles Drive.

Project Cost and Schedule
The design and construction of the project is funded through a cost-sharing program between the towns of Apex and Cary and the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO). A total of $843,000 in STP-DA funding was awarded to the Towns for the project through the CAMPO Locally Administered Project Program (LAPP).
The project is scheduled to begin in Spring 2020.
