If you regularly travel along U.S. Highway 15-501 between Durham and Chapel Hill, you know how congested it can be every day. To help plan for the future of this busy highway, resident input is now being sought for the Reimagining 15-501 Corridor Study.
The Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC MPO) and the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) are co-hosting a public workshop and visioning activity for this corridor study on Tuesday, June 26 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Church of the Good Shepherd, 3741 Garrett Road, Durham. Parking is available in the church parking lot.
The purpose of this workshop is to seek input on this multimodal transportation study of the corridor from University Drive in Durham to Ephesus Church Road and Fordham Boulevard in Chapel Hill. Staff will be available during this workshop to answer questions and receive feedback. Residents are also invited to participate in a visioning activity during the workshop, which will begin with a formal presentation at 6:30 p.m.
For more information about the project, visit the Reimagining 15-501 Corridor Study website. Residents who are unable to attend the June 26 workshop are encouraged to provide their input on the interactive map located on the website by Tuesday, July 10. Interested residents may also follow the DCHC MPO on Facebook and Twitter for #reimagining15501 updates.
