Advance Apex: The 2045 Plan

Advance Apex is one process that will result in two plans – a long-range transportation plan and an updated future land use map. The community-driven planning process will establish a vision for the transportation system and land use in Apex, identify needs and deficiencies, guide growth and development, recommend specific projects and strategies, and create an action plan for implementation.

Public input is critical to the plan’s success. This brief survey offers you an opportunity to express what's most important to you.  We value your input.  Let's get started!  

Any questions can be directed to Shannon Cox, Senior Transportation Planner, at 919-249-3505 or [email protected]

The infrastructure is years behind the growth explosion here. Most of our traffic problems are due to volume - too many cars on single lane roads. In addition, there are many roads and bridges that need to be updated and/or repaired.

I would like to see a bus route that helps Apex citizens get around. I would definitely make use of a bus or shuttle that would take me to work in RTP.

You've got to have a good traffic plan BEFORE building more, more, more!!! And the developers need to pay for it. For instance...
All those condos at Beaver Creek??? There needs to be safer traffic pattern at the intersection of Kelly Rd and Beaver Creek!!
Reply Flag 20 Agree22 days ago
A lot of our road work is backwards to our construction. For instance, the Kelly & Olive Chapel road work that happened after the new Publix was open instead of concurrent with construction. Another example is the inability to turn left onto Kelly from the back entrance to Beaver Creek where they are doing all of the townhome construction now.

I beg you to stop approving homes until you have the appropriate infrastructure in place. I moved to Apex 12 years ago and have seen a tremendous expansion of homes including single family and apartments. The town simply cannot sustain on the current infrastructure. Two lane roads without turn singles cause congestion, frustration, accidents, etc. it ised to take me 30 minutes to get to work and it now takes 50 minutes due to the increase of traffic. Also I feel Olive Chapel Elementary has been placed in a precarious position always battling traffics woes and the town made it worse by approving all of the surrounding buildings and business and more are on the way. The oublic trafgic blockes the entrance to the school and parents can not turn in to the school. The OCE intersection "improvedments" are a joke. There are a number of neighborhoods complaining about speeding and lack of enforcement from police as new schools are placed near neighborhoods and add an increase of traffic as parents and students look for short cuts. The neighborhoods have so many people that the bus stops are jammed packed with parents lined up in their cars blocking intersections.

I think "traffic congestion and delay" and "disconnect between..." are one and the same. We have congestion and delay because of all the building of subdivisions and neighborhoods on two lane roads not ready to handle all the additional cars. Have you driven on 751 to/from Durham during commute hours? It's now officially awful. Apex is close to that point. I'm all for growth but the infrastructure has to be there first.

We need sidewalks that actually connect to other sidewalks. Are you aware that kids in crocketts ridge neighborhood cannot walk/ride to olive chapel elementary/ scotts ridge elementary because of missing sidewalk segments? Really people? Kids that cant safely walk to school is not looking out for the community. I would like to see real life interest in connecting pedestrians to local schools and shopping centers from the crocketts ridge subdivision and other subdivisions. Some subdivisions simply need a crosswalk across kelly road in order to connect them to the sidewalk segments on kelly road. Thank you.
Reply Flag 17 Agree22 days ago
On 10/10 several neighborhoods surround a park, the kids have to cross the street 7 times or more to get to the park, to walk on the sidewalks. Try walking to downtown from any of the neighborhoods that are considered in the downtown area and the zip/zagging back and forth across the busy center street and 10/10 is maddening, especially around 5:00PM when 10/10 is backed up. As Apex expands the lack of completion of the downtown infrastructure is now fighting for funds to complete what should have been completed the last 10 years.

Too much building without updating infrastructure. Example 1: intersection of Apex BBQ and Humie Olive. This intersection has already had more than one accident and was always difficult to see around, even without all the new houses that were built near it recently. Example 2: Humie Olive between Old 1 and AFHS. The road is so narrow in spots that two cars barely fit (let alone if one of the vehicles is a construction truck) and there is a steep drop off onto the dirt shoulder if you move off the road. Not a good mix with teenage drivers and the increased traffic coming from filling AFHS and the new AFMS opening next fall.

Traffic lights or pedestrian lights are not installed along some of the new roads. These are accidents waiting to happen.
The development has been great but the infrastructure to support the growth is lacking
There is not need to stop 'approving' new apt. complexes - it's the only way Apex can maintain its upward growth trajectory. What is needed is a corresponding development in road/infrastructure
Builders are charging exorbitant prices for housing. The city should set rates that charge builders accordingly to generate local revenue for necessary improvements (infrastructure, etc)

To keep Apex great, pass a "Small Town Character" ordinance to have developers add gazebos, walkways, benches, green spaces (ie "charater stuff") so that Apex can keep it's small town feel as it grows. The corner of Kelly Road/Olive Chapel feels like I'm in Raleigh (not Apex). 540 flex park? Did someone use a blueprint from 1975? Peak of Good Living? Not. As for traffic, not much Apex can do about that until growth stops. Wider roads w/sidewalks, bigger buffers and greenways will intrinsically ease people's frustration. That, and stop building high density townhomes/condos and apartments!!!! I get the live/work/play thing....but with high density housing...it's more like live/work/play/wait-in-traffic.

Road size and speed not keeping up with the growth of the town. This adds to many of the above issues - congestion, safety issues, lack of pedestrian paths, poor crosswalk signage, etc. Speeds are too fast in many areas for the added vehicle population and pedestrian/bicycle usage in many parts of town. Apex BBQ Rd is a good example of a road that needs the speed lowered. With the addition of the church, the Woodall neighborhood, Scotts Ridge Elementary, Bella Casa neighborhood and to soon-to-open fire station 45mph is WAY too fast for as much traffic (pedestrian and vehicle) for such a narrow and gently hilly/curvy road gets every day. The speed at the Kinship end of Apex BBQ is simply too fast for the width of the road. I believe this is an NCDOT issue, but the town needs to lead the way. Residents in the neighborhoods along Olive Chapel Rd would benefit from a reduced speed. Kelly Road with the huge development that will be added between Apex BBQ and Hwy 1 will be another road that's too narrow and fast for the population it is going to support (including the school bus traffic). Kelly Rd near Abbington and Beaver Creek is going to be a disaster with all the homes put in if the road speed isn't changed south of Hwy64. I could go on, but I think you get my point. 45 is too fast on many of these now heavily traveled roads.

The density of housing will be an even greater issue if we do not find a solution for Highway 55 at Olive Chapel and the smaller feeder streets in the downtown area. Though this isn't a problem for us, I'd like to see Apex consider some one way streets in residential areas so that you can get out of a neighborhood onto a busy street but not in from that same street. The exit by the library on 64 is a good example of letting people into a neighborhood but pushing outgoing traffic to Lake Pine.

congestion and delay influenced by the disconnect between land use and transportation planning. neighborhoods put in places where builders are not being forced to update surrounding roads.

Deny all rezoning and development plans that feed directly into Hwy 1010 until widening is completed! Intersections without traffic lights are extremely dangerous. Drivers are taking risks by only yielding through stop signs and passing on double lines, tailgating, and passing school buses! There needs to be a caution light that changes to stop when gas tankers pulling out of Motiva attempt to enter 1010. Too many drivers playing chicken with these tankers that have to creep out into traffic due to heavy congestion all day long! This is a tragedy and environmental nightmare waiting to happen!

Protected bike lines on major roadways (NC 55, Apex Peakway, Beaver Creek area). The protected part is very important and would increase biking for transportation. When people can go directly to their destination instead of spending additional time on greenways that don't lead directly to their destination, biking will increase and traffic delays will decrease. Most things within Apex are within a very bike-able distance. Let's make biking to the grocery store, dining, or the dentist easier than driving.

* Slow the growth until infrastructure can catch up
* Traffic on 55 at most times of day (any day of week) is slow.
* Why was a left arrow added on 55&Hughes if it never turns green?
* Can 55 under RR track be resurfaced (raised?) so that it doesn't flood every time someone sneezes?

Apex has always adopted the build-it as it grows. Unfortunately this leaves gaps between developments which cause significant traffic challenges. Streets that go from two lanes to one lane and then back are silly and create opportunities for traffic problems. Additionally, building commercial space directly across the street from elementary schools is silly. I am confident that in the future we will be reading about a child hit attempting to cross the street. Street lights aren’t timed well, roads are not kept and lack of bicycle lanes all contribute to the problem. Does anyone have a vision? If so, can we progress logically?

The town continues to approve large residential developments, townhouse and apartment development and gives no thought to traffic, roads, congestion, sidewalk connections, or greenways. Why don't we upgrade those things before we approve anymore large developments? Most people are not aware of the numerous large developments that are already approved and are coming, it's only going to get worse. Let's stop it now while we can and try to fix it before it becomes unfixable.

Second up would be perhaps a disconnect from land use and transportation, which has resulted in traffic congestion. Public transport, namely mass rail, seems like a solution. But, then too, I saw a speech by a Mercedes exec predicting the widespread advent of self-driving cars by 2020 (!), transforming transportation radically within eg 5-10 years. In that there’d be centralized parking lots, people ordering their self-driving car whenever needed, thus moving from ownership to pay-as-you-go. Now, I’ve no idea, but would think this top Mercedes exec might know industry forecast better than I, and there were a cluster of intriguing implications if this transformation does happen within say 15 years, that should be considered now in terms of planning. Like, self-driving vans/schoolbuses - might unclog eg Thales stop-and-sit traffic congestion on the Peakway, etc etc.

Bike lanes and greenways are two different things. Bike lanes are for transportation and need to be 1)protected and 2) be connected in such a way that people can go directly to their destination (work, shopping, eating out) in an efficient and safe manner. Greenways are for recreation. They should be safe, accessible and pleasant, but they are not designed with a specific destination in mind. The two uses need to be separately considered.

We need to make sure that Apex maintains its character and doesn't just become cookie cutter subdivisions buying out beautiful old farmhouses/horse stables/etc. We currently have too much development going on all at outrageous prices. There needs to be affordable yet nice options for homes, wherever that may be in town.

I know it's a sign of the times and taxes are too high for them to be maintained but it's heartbreaking to see all the beautiful farms be bulldozed for GIANT homes inches apart put up in their places.

We moved here hoping for more green space and quieter area than Cary but growth feels unchecked and disorganized. There are townhouses being put up before there are adequate lights to handle the traffic, i.e. at Kelly and Beaver Creek. There are areas of Olive Chapel that are so narrow that it is difficult to pass when any of the construction bulldozers are going past. Feels like Apex is going for bulldozing and building long before it has a plan for adequately widening roads and making intersection safe. Not to mention it is difficult to imagine how any green spaces are being protected with Farms going under right and left and now talk of a pond being filled in for more development. Very concerned that Apex will lose its feeling of being a small town and its aesthetic appeal.

We have everything we need already and we can get the rest on Amazon. We want greenery and to remain a small town with beautiful, safe neighborhoods and good schools. Stop destroying farmland and building more and more apartments. This will destroy the local quality of life.

We need to preserve the integrity of all walking distance neighborhoods. So, if you can walk to a park, let's keep that flexibility. If you can walk to downtown, let's not put 1,000 more people in there but rather create good lots so more people can walk. When we create neighborhoods, let's create businesses that can serve walking distance crowds AND people with cars. Let's agree to never create anything that looks like Crossroads and never have a traffic pattern that is Holly Springs near their new retail. No left turns onto Highway 55?

All of the above! Just needs to be programmed in conjunction with the larger context of the triangle; taking advantage of current an planned thoroughfare/collector network. Apex is centrally located, and positioned to take advantage of the approximate 65 ppl/day that move to the triangle. Apex is 15 min from Southern Durham, 2 min to Cary, 10 min to Raleigh, 15 min to Pittsboro and sits right on the expanding I-540/US 1 & HWY 64 nodes. Together with other central towns located nearest the employment hubs Apex can be, and will be poised to be become more dense and house more people that want to work, live and play near their jobs. Transportation should be planned out accordingly - large lots, medium density? That's for areas on the other side of the limiting barriers to sprawl (watersheds tot he North/West).

This is not one size fits all. 1.) Improve existing facilities throughout the town. 2.) Promote new retail near downtown (but only after the parking garage is built), 3.) Office buildings should be recruited to either downtown or to underdeveloped areas. If companies can FINALLY be brought into Apex, they are typically willing to invest in greenways and other infrastructure to support many of the other initiatives in this survey. Imagine a industry leading company near Apex Nature Park, with a nice greenway to downtown Apex so you can ride your bike to work. I'd work there and take a pay cut!

The price tags on all the new homes going up are just insanely expensive only because they are in Apex. I'm curious when this bubble will burst. If I want a home starting in the 400 -500's as a lot of these are, I want more than a few feet between myself and my neighbor, and I would actually want a backyard and some trees! Everything is so barren and close together. I appreciate my early 2000's neighborhood where we may not have mega mansions but there is space between the homes and everyone has a yard, and I just don't see anything being built like that any more

My mom is 70. She's been looking to move back to this area for 4 years. There are NO options for her. All she wants is a simple home with first floor master. She doesn't want a $300-400K home. I adore Villages of Apex. Those homes would be perfect for her in a bit smaller scale. She doesn't want to be house poor at age 70. She wants to enjoy independent living in a simple home. We have a plethora of 3-story townhomes in a population of people who moved to the Triangle in the 80's for jobs with young families. That's us! All those people are now retiring and not all want giant homes or want to maintain them. Simple. I know builders don't like that but it's a need.

Housing needs to take schools into consideration. The Apex schools are either capped or almost capped and there is still building. The residents will be transferred from one school to another and, like in the past, the town will blame the school system. The lack of spaces in Apex schools has NOTHING to do with WCPSS and everything to do with development without taking children and schools into account.

Affordable housing for seniors is needed and will help balance our town's population. Seniors pay taxes and don't have kids in schools. They shop and eat outside normal hours (for the most part.) They have time to volunteer and be engaged citizens. They provide numbers for a high quality medical community.

Most people moved here for the smaller town feel. Now we live in Cary. All this building = tax revenue. When are taxes going down? Otherwise what's the point? More traffic and noise? At lease with less houses, the prices are staying high.

Consider changing the need from "affordable housing" (which has a negative connotation), to "housing affordability" which most of the denizens of Apex can relate to. Even middle class with 100 AMI might struggle to afford the current "new inventory" of apex. Purportedly, over 90% of Apex work force (polled Police, Fire and EMS) cannot afford to live in Apex, and currently do not. Need more choices that are affordable.

Another voice for AFFORDABLE senior housing. Real developments. Not just retirement /care homes or high density apartments but single family or duet one-story homes for those that want the space. There are builders that specialize in senior developments and the town should focus on bringing a good 55+ development here. Seniors don't require schools, they spend money in their communities and pay taxes. They volunteer and are an important part of our community.

The biggest housing needs are those of wildlife. Keeping water clean and green spaces to maintain quality of life, and fresh air to breathe

Good point! Seeing deer and other wildlife in town is just so sad. There is a deer family that lives near the pond at WakeMed because there is nowhere left for them to go.

Let the dust settle from all of the building that is going on now - no more building at all for awhile to preserve the town before it becomes a city!
Reply Flag 3 Agree21 days ago
the apartments and townhouses put more people in a smaller area - they contribute to density, strain schools and more cars. If apex will be a family friendly community, it should focus on housing - both large and midsized but also smaller houses for the grandparents moving along with families coming here - a 3 story townhome isn't what is needed.

When town workers can't afford to live in the towns they serve, that is a problem. We need affordable housing for middle income families, as well as affordable, accessible housing for seniors. A majority of seniors will not be able to afford to live in these fancy retirement Communities that are cropping up on every corner, given the current retirement savings rate. And all it takes is a downturn or recession in the stock market for many well-heeled seniors to no longer afford these communities. I would urge Spec to look at some of the model cohousing efforts for seniors in Oregon and Washington for ideas, or a nice tiny house subdivision focused around a courtyard, community garden and communal dining/meeting/exrcise/library space.

We need to start thinking ahead - I would love to "age in place" here in Apex. But, in order for that to occur, I will need access to some or all of the following - a smaller home (single family house, apt or townhouse with single story living), quality assisted living and possibly a quality nursing home. I would need to be able to walk or bike safely to my destination. Apex should continue to develop relationships with organizations that provide services to older adults - WakeMed, YMCA, etc. and should cultivate and encourage other business that serve older people (everything from grocery stores that deliver to medical services, home health and a robust senior center).

I hated the artificial feel of living in Morrisville with sterile neighborhoods, generic retail, congested roads, and lack of park space. Apex seemed like the only place in the Triangle that still maintained the feeling of a small town while having an energetic, quaint downtown and relatively convenient access to Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and RTP. I'm really concerned we are losing what made us stand out by building cookie cutter neighborhoods with $500k homes built on top of each other on land that used to be pastoral horse farms (why the heck are we okay with all this clear cutting, by the way? Do we think homeowners don't want mature trees in their neighborhoods?). We can make the choice to not give in to the development bug like so many other towns have. This is what can continue to make us a desirable place to live.

I chose Apex over Cary in 1993 because I could buy a reasonably sized house on a reasonably sized lot within walking distance of downtown (Brittany Trace).

Salem Village - a great neighborhood which was allowed to be split across the peakway, to put houses too close to collector roads and did not consider future growth around the train tracks and the 540 exit at Salem. without knowing the history of the approvals, it feels like Standard Pacific forced the town to make concessions they should not have.

The on-ramp on to 64 from Kelly Rd is terrifying at rush hour. Many people must merge left since the merge lane ends, but only for about 200 yards before they merge back right to get on the 540 exit. Why not extend the on-ramps so people can just stay in the same lane before exiting 64 for 540? There seems to be plenty of room to do this. Same when going off of 540 to go to the Kelly Road exit.

To add to the information already stated, it's a very dangerous intersection where McDonald's comes out to Lake Pine. People are frustrated, angry, and there's not enough room for the traffic to get through the intersection going on to Lake Pine Drive to Old Raleigh Road. Add to that the congestion that is at Cosco, coming from the other and Apex from Pittsboro, Chapel Hill, etc, this entire intersection is a nightmare along with the one at Laura Duncan and 64.

Public transport to Raleigh was not enabled on this map. As a growing commuter town, Apex should consider either getting people to work closer to home (preferred) or increase support for the public transport to where people work. One way to better utilize the existing transportation infrastructure would be to encourage better utilization of the carpool and slow down the ever growing single passenger vehicles. Look to China. They have made tangible progress with private social networks in this area and are saving lots of carbon emissions in return.

Make Old US 1 bicycle friendly. Repave with shoulders, a bicycle lane. Also Salem st north needs to be bicycle friendly, widen, bike lanes.

Map didn't work well. Intersection at Kelly RD and olive chapel needs to be expanded.
55 needs to be widened including the bridge. Light rail into downtown apex. Bus routes throughout the city.
Pedestrian bridge over 64 at laura Duncan

The downtown is a key feature of small town Apex. Parking is a huge issue. We desperately need a parking deck!

The Town needs to determine the amount of additional park land required to support the population in 2045 and be proactive in acquiring the land.

Missed a great opportunity to create a new section of downtown reatal and restaurants to add to what already existed. Instead, we end up with a storage facility, a school that creates traffic in an already busy area, and a vacant lot.
