Traffic outbound from downtown Raleigh was diverted Thursday afternoon after the rains of Tropical Storm Michael caused standing water on Capital Boulevard at Peace Street. Traffic was backed up on McDowell Street through downtown where it approached Capital.
Water was covering the southbound lanes of Capital Boulevard, and delays stretched north to Wake Forest Road.
All lanes reopened just before 7:30 p.m., as the storm pulled away from central North Carolina.
On Glenwood Avenue outside Crabtree Valley Mall, standing water was visible on the road.
Overall, the traffic volume was light throughout the day on Thursday, thanks in part to widespread school cancellations.
