Feedback Requested by October 13

If you’re interested in helping to shape our region’s transportation future, now’s your chance to give feedback on proposed highway, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian improvements in the U.S. 15-501 corridor between Durham and Chapel Hill.

The Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC MPO) is now seeking public feedback on their proposed study for the corridor. The U.S. 15-501 Corridor Study identifies future highway, transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and other transportation improvements along U.S. 15-501 between University Drive in Durham and Ephesus Church Road in Chapel Hill. The study integrates land use, relevant local and statewide plans, and a transportation vision for distinct segments of the area.

A copy of the proposed study can now be found on the DCHC MPO website, and residents and stakeholders are encouraged to email their comments to Andrew.Henry@DurhamNC.gov. Residents and stakeholders may also directly address the DCHC MPO Board concerning the Corridor Study on Wednesday, October 14 beginning at 9 a.m. during the public hearing at their virtual board meeting. Participants are asked to request to speak at the public hearing by sending an email to Andrew.Henry@DurhamNC.gov by October 13. The October 14 virtual meeting will also be live streamed on the DCHC MPO’s Facebook page.

For more information about the U.S. 15-501 Corridor Study, contact DCHC MPO Principal Planner Andrew Henry at (919) 560-4366, ext. 36419 or by email.
