Woodcroft Parkway Extension Project
Project Overview and Background
The City of Durham is extending Woodcroft Parkway west from its current terminus at Hope Valley Road (NC 751) to a new intersection with Garrett Road, in front of C.E Jordan High School. The project will reduce traffic congestion at the intersection of Garrett Road and Hope Valley Road, and provide a safer multi-modal connection between C.E. Jordan High School and surrounding neighborhoods.
Needs to be addressed:
- Traffic congestion and delays at the existing intersection of NC 751 (Hope Valley Road) with Garrett Road
- Safe and convenient access to Jordan HS and to nearby neighborhoods for those who drive, walk, bike or ride the bus
