Wake Forest Northeast Community Plan - December 2021






CONNECTIVITY Existing connectivity is limited, particularly in the form of pedestrian and bicycle amenities, throughout the study area (see Figure 1.C.2). However, the Town has been gradually working on improving the pedestrian and bicycle facilities in the area through the implementation of planned public infrastructure projects, including those recommended in the Town’s 2019 Comprehensive Transportation Plan. • The Wake Forest Loop is the only bus line in the study area. The bus travels along N. White Street, E. Juniper Avenue, N. Allen Road, and Wait Avenue and connects mostly to points south. The loop interchanges with other transit lines along its route, outside of the Northeast Community. This service is free for residents. • Currently, there are no existing bicycle facilities within the study area. However, there is a proposed bike lane/ sharrow along Wait Avenue on the extreme southern border of the study area. This proposed bicycle facility would

integrate with both existing and planned infrastructure improvements for the area.

• There are no existing greenway/

multi-use paths within the Northeast Community. However, there are planned facilities along E. Juniper Avenue and along N. White Street from E. Juniper Avenue to Royal Mill Avenue. These planned improvements will connect to existing greenway/ multi-use paths on E. Juniper Avenue and Royal Mill Avenue. There is also a proposed multi-use path along Wait Avenue at N. Allen Road. Connectivity in the Northeast Community should be improved through a variety of interventions including new multi-use paths, greenways, and streetscapes. In addition, pedestrian and bicyclist safety should be prioritized with street calming elements and other improvements.
