Kimley-Horn and Associates of Raleigh, NC has been hired as the design firm to prepare plans, obtain permits, and hold informational meetings with stakeholders. They began data collection in February, 2018 and currently are in the 65% design phase of the project.
The City of Durham Public Works Department is now preparing designs for pedestrian facilities along North Duke Street from West Murray Avenue to North Roxboro Street, and City staff wants to share their work and receive community input.
The drop-in style meeting is set for Tuesday, May 28 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Glendale Heights United Methodist Church, which is located at 908 Leon St. Residents will be able to review the preliminary design, ask questions of City staff and consultants, and provide input before the department completes the design work. The goal of the project is to improve pedestrian accommodations with proposed improvements include sidewalk, curb ramps, pedestrian crossings, and associated pavement markings.
For residents who cannot attend this meeting, maps and comment forms to collect feedback will be available after the meeting date on the project website. Resident feedback is requested by Tuesday, June 11.
