Here is a brief weekly update on some items of interest and current activities of the RTA business coalition–feel free to share with your associates.

You can do something about traffic congestion this Monday afternoon
RTA is launching a traffic congestion task force for members to identify traffic trouble spots and help catalyze potential solutions. The first meeting takes place this Monday, March 27, 1:30 p.m., at the Cary Chamber of Commerce. Please email me if you would like to participate in this task force – I would like to hear from a good cross-section of our membership so please consider joining us.

Learn how NCDOT plans to make travel safer in Northern Wake
NCDOT will host public meetings this week in Wake Forest and North Raleigh regarding proposed projects to separate vehicle and rail traffic. Seven new bridges would replace existing crossings along the freight rail corridor north of Raleigh, which is the proposed higher speed rail corridor to Richmond. See project and public meeting details here.

Help decide the future of North Raleigh’s main street
The City of Raleigh is examining various multimodal options to improve travel and enhance a sense of place along Six Forks Road from the I-440/Midtown area to Lynn Road. Learn more about the proposed “four lane” and “six lane” options here including a link to provide feedback – the deadline for comments is April 21.

RTA takes a strategic approach to critical transportation priorities, focusing on areas where focused regional business leadership can make a meaningful difference. Thank you for your support!

Let’s get moving,
