Cornwallis Road (between South Roxboro and Fayetteville Street) is currently 60' wide with a posted speed limit of 35mph. The proposed improvements will narrow the road from five lanes to three lanes, and add buffered bicycle facilities. It will connect to planned bicycle facilities on Cornwallis between South Roxboro and Chapel Hill Road, South Roxboro from Cornwallis Road to Summit Street, and bicycle facilities on Fayetteville Street from Cornwallis Road to Nelson Street. You can view the proposed cross-section below, and the full design 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.
