Stadium Drive and Olympic Avenue provide north-south access to Durham County Stadium and Duke Regional Hospital, and also connect the Whippoorwill Park/Warren Creek Trail and the Ellerbee Creek Trail/Rock Quarry Park. Other nearby destinations include the Edison Johnson Aquatics Center and the Museum of Life and Science.
Currently the two-lane road is between 34-40' wide, resulting in high speeds of motor vehicles. While the North-South Greenway runs alongside a large portion of this corridor, bicycle lanes will provide another option for those travelling by bicycle and also make the road safer for those travelling by car.
You can see the proposed cross-section below, and the full design can be seen here.
Comments received during the September public meeting and online comment period are being reviewed and, if possible, incorporated. When complete, the final designs will be shared on this page.
The re-striping work is estimated to occur in Summer 2019.
