The Durham Chapel Hill Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC MPO) and the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) are conducting a multimodal corridor study of the US 15-501 corridor from Ephesus Church Road/Fordham Boulevard, in Chapel Hill to University Drive, in Durham. The study, which will be approved in the first half of 2020, will develop an updated multimodal transportation master plan for the corridor that integrates the latest land-use and multimodal transportation vision for the corridor.
The study team conducted a public workshop on Thursday, October 17th. If you would like to submit comments, please go to the project website: Reimagining 15-501 Comments will be accepted through October 31st.
The MPO will release the final report and recommendation in early 2020 and request further public comments.
The following draft scroll maps and ledger-sized maps for all three alternatives will be reviewed at the workshop. Alternative 3 includes a bus-only lane west of the US 15-501 bypass. The scroll maps are best for viewing context while the ledger-sized maps have superior resolution for zoomed-in views.
