I mean it's a divided 4 lane road. Those are designed for heavy traffic. You can tell a lot about a road by looking at the curb cuts. Those are breaks in the curbing where driveways or other streets enter onto a road. There are quite a few acres of undeveloped land there that were basically landlocked until Regency was built but it's not that much.

Regency cannot go any further east. That area is locked up by current developments.

I think the money would have been much better spent turning Evans into a 4 lane divided (no center turn lane, I hate those) road.
I completely agree. 4 lane it to firetower

I drove by that this weekend and was still trying to figure it out. I thought it was going to be something for the car dealership right next door but it's not looking like that. Here is a pic I took of it if anyone is interested in what it looks like.

This needs to happen. What's the point of shooting across Regency, only to turn off into a long, two-lane traffic jam (during rush hour anyway) on your shortcut to Firetower or Greenville Blvd?

Does anyone know about the status of the Grey Fox Run development at Bells Fork? This was suppose to be a huge complex with different types of living (condo, flats, townhomes) but when the housing crisis hit I guess things got put on hold. In the last couple of years I've seen some stand alone homes pop up beside the Bellamy student apartment complex but I don't know if they're associated.

Hopefully "high-rise" apartments will mean three stories. Anything close to "high-rise" needs to go uptown.

But, I think student housing would do well there. It is close to PCC. Are there any student apartment that are for exclusively for PCC students? If you look at Wake Tech Community College, there are A LOT of apartment complexes around there. Now WTCC is larger than PCC, but still.

Yeah, to expand it from Greenville Blvd to Worthington Road. It is number 8 on the priority list, but I think the list is fairly fluid.

It's looking a little less likely, at this time, that US 264 will become an Interstate any time soon. There are two options. Get Congress to fund it or get the state to commit to a 25 year plan to bring US 264 up to Interstate standards and then choose a number. It was agreed that the state will do the most preliminary work in getting the process started. That is basically measuring the road to see exactly what will have to be done.
