Going to see Obama? Where will u park?

Posted by on Tue, Oct 28, 2008 at 3:22 PM

City of Raleigh is closing streets at 9:30 am in preparation for the noontime rally ("pre-program" set to start at 11:15) and parking-deck space nearby is limited. The city's forewarning is copied below. Our thought: Take a bus to the Moore Square transfer station downton and walk over to the mall.

From the City o' Raleigh:

DOWNTOWN STREETS TO BE CLOSED WEDNESDAY MORNING FOR OBAMA RALLY

Several streets in downtown Raleigh will be closed Wednesday morning to accommodate a rally attended by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. The rally will be held on Halifax Mall outside the Legislative Building.

The following roads will be closed at approximately 9:30 a.m.:

∑ Wilmington Street from Jones Street to Peace Street;

∑ Salisbury Street from Peace Street to Lane Street;

∑ Lane Street from Salisbury Street to Blount Street;

∑ Polk Street from Wilmington Street to Blount Street; and,

∑ North Street from Wilmington Street to Blount Street.

Detour signs will be posted for motorists on northbound Wilmington Street, directing the traffic to take Jones Street to Person Street to Peace Street.

Capital Area Transit buses will experience detours on Salisbury Street and Wilmington Streets between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. CAT Routes 1 (Capital Boulevard), 2 (Falls of Neuse), 3 (Glascock), 4 (Rex Hospital), 10 (Longview ) and 12 (Method )will not serve bus stops between Jones Street and Peace Street during these hours. For more information on the affected service, call the Regional GoTriangle Call Center at 485-RIDE.

Also, parking will be limited for the rally. Some hourly parking will be available at the City of Raleigh’s Blount Street, Moore Square, and Wilmington Street parking decks. All of these decks have entrances on Wilmington Street. The City of Raleigh’s Performing Arts and Convention Center parking decks have the most available hourly spaces. These decks are several blocks to the south of the rally site and are accessible from Lenoir Street. Hourly parking also is available at the State’s visitor parking facilities. Visitor Lot 1 is across from the State Archives building, with entrances on Jones and Edenton streets. Visitor Lot 2 can be accessed from McDowell Street, just north of Lane Street.
