RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — An end is in sight for a project reshaping the look and flow of Raleigh’s Hillsborough Street, but the finish line is still months away and months behind. Construction started in June 2016 on the roughly half-mile project, which aims to improve safety, reduce traffic signals, and smooth and slow speeds. Looking ahead, you’ll find public art, bike lanes, raised medians and more roundabouts. The medians are designed to make the stretch of road more pedestrian-friendly.
NEW HILL, N.C. (WNCN) – Sirens blasted around the Shearon Harris Nuclear Power Plant Wednesday in the annual full-volume test of the 83 sirens in the 10-mile radius around the plant. No evacuations have been necessary since the facility began operations three decades ago, but much has changed in the last 30 years as the population has boomed around the nuclear reactor. A recent test siren alerted Lewis Jackson to the fact that his new house is just a few miles from the plant.
RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – The City of Raleigh will launch a study into improving Capital Boulevard between Interstate-440 and Interstate-540.

The study will examine the functionality of the stretch and connections to adjacent neighborhoods and amenities. “As far as people getting to us, it’s not a big deal.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
