Conceptual Designs
The city’s Department of Public Works is ready to present revised conceptual designs showing the preferred alternative for converting the downtown loop into 2-way traffic. This revised concept is based on public input received at the 1st workshop in October 2009.

The city is interested in converting the downtown loop to improve vehicular and pedestrian access and flow and to spur economic redevelopment in the downtown core. The city commissioned Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc. to conduct a traffic feasibility study for converting the downtown loop, which is currently 1-way, into a 2-way corridor.

Preferred Alternative
The preferred alternative for converting to 2-way traffic was presented at a public workshop in downtown Durham. City staff was on hand to discuss the project, answer questions, and take note of any comments and concerns at this early phase in the project. All Durham residents and the news media are invited to attend.
