Feedback Requested by June 30

If you’re interested in highway, bicycle, multi-use paths, and transit projects for our region, you’re invited to give your feedback now on an assessment of future transportation needs.

The Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC MPO) is seeking public feedback on the Deficiency and Needs Analysis for the 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). The 2050 MTP identifies future highway, transit, rail, bicycle, pedestrian, and other transportation projects for this region over the next 30 years.

The DCHC MPO is updating the 2050 MTP this fall, and will use the public input received on the Deficiency and Needs Analysis as part of their efforts to model future population and employment projections to identify where roadway, public transportation, bicycle, pedestrian, and other transportation investments will be needed in the coming decades.

Residents and other stakeholders are asked to review the Deficiency and Needs Analysis at the DCHC MPO website and provide comments by email no later than Wednesday, June 30.

For more information about the 2050 MTP, contact DCHC MPO Principal Planner Andy Henry at (919) 560-4366, ext. 36419 or by email.
