Public Input Requested by February 22

If you’re interested in major transit investments and local roadways, now is the time to give your input. 

The Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC MPO) is seeking public input on Amendment #4 to the Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP). The CTP is a multimodal transportation plan that covers transportation needs for the next 30 years and beyond. 

Amendment #4 removes the former Durham-Orange Light Rail Transit alignment, incorporates the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Complete Streets Guidelines, and changes or removes several local roadways including Erwin Road, Pettigrew Street, University Drive, Ellis-Glover Connector, and Hopson Road Extension. The Amendment also adds bus access improvements to Fayetteville Street, Holloway Street, N. Roxboro Street, and Chapel Hill Road.

How to Learn More & Give Input:

  • Online: Residents and other stakeholders are asked to review the CTP Amendment #4 on the DCHC MPO website and provide comments by email or by calling (919) 560-4366, ext. 36419 no later than Tuesday, February 22.
