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 facilities below.
You can provide comments on the proposed cross-section 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.
