US 15-501 Corridor Study (Durham – Chapel Hill)

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 mid-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 in October 2019 and created a final plan document and conceptual design based on comments received at the workshop. The team continues to work on a few remaining design and access issues, and plans to request that the DCHC MPO Board release a final plan and design in June 2020 for further public review, comment, and ultimately for approval.

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.
