Adding bicycle facilities on Lakewood Avenue between Fayetteville Street and Duke Street will connect the proposed bicycle facilities on Fayetteville Street and the existing bicycle lanes on Blackwell Street and University Drive, as well as improve access to the American Tobacco Trail.
The pavement width along this corridor varies between 27 and 44 feet. No changes to the existing curb are proposed as part of this project.
The proposed improvements can be seen below, and comments can be made on a survey using this link. A public meeting will be held at the Whitted School in Durham on Saturday September 22 from 10am-1pm. At the public meeting you will be able to see the preliminary designs, ask questions of City staff and the consultants, and provide comments.
