Traffic Impact

Businesses in the project area will be accessible during construction, except for the nights when there is a road closure.

Capital Boulevard and Peace Street will be open to traffic from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays. Closures for utility, drainage and bridge construction work are possible between midnight and 5 a.m.

Weekend road and interchange closures are possible from 9 p.m. Fridays until 6 a.m. Mondays. Northbound lanes on Capital Boulevard, however, will remain open with some lane restrictions, and southbound traffic will be detoured.

Fairview Road Flyover Ramp

The southbound Fairview Road flyover ramp will be closed for the duration of construction. The northbound Fairview Road flyover ramp and the slip ramp from the business access road to southbound Capital Boulevard will remain open.

Transit Impacts

Three GoRaleigh bus stops on West Peace Street will be relocated or removed during construction. More information will be available from GoRaleigh closer to the time of the Peace Street interchange construction.

Pedestrian Impacts


  • Temporary crosswalks are available on Peace Street at the Capital Boulevard interchange intersections. These high-visibility crosswalks provide a safer, single crossing path for pedestrians and draw the attention of motorists.
  • Motion-detection audible warning devices have been installed at these intersections, along Peace Street in the project area, and at sidewalk closure points. These devices serve to notify pedestrians of upcoming obstacles and provide information to those in need of additional assistance.

    An accessible vehicle service through GoRaleigh Access will be provided for those individuals on an on-call basis. The audible warning devices provide the vehicle service phone number.
  • Temporary walkways along Capital Boulevard are available, where possible, but certain areas are closed to foot traffic.
