Jarles Alberg: Tunnel vision

December 24, 2013 

What I really want for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, I want for the city of Raleigh. I would love to see NCSU take some of its escrow/sports/timber money and build a car, train, pedestrian and bicycle tunnel under Avent Ferry Road between the divided campuses.

A second present would be a tunnel under the divided North Hills Shopping Center.

Both locations are perfectly situated on a rise that would make it fairly easy to create a people-friendly tunnel for moving people and vehicles safely at two of the most scary pedestrian crossings in Raleigh.
