The City of Durham Transportation Department and the NCDOT are planning a roadway reconfiguration project on Fayetteville Street from Pilot Street to George Street to improve safety and maintain traffic flow along the corridor beginning in 2016.
The project will resurface the damaged road surface and restripe travel lanes. After reconfiguration, this section of Fayetteville Street will have 1 center turning lane, 1 travel lane in each direction, and bicycle lanes in both directions.
Studies indicate that this design will maintain current traffic capacity while improving the safety of people driving, walking, bicycling and taking transit. All work will be within the existing street and will not affect adjacent properties.
