Planning Agency Seeks Comment on Changes to Bicycle/Pedestrian and Other Transportation Projects

Bike

If you’re interested in the future highway, bicycle, multiuse paths, and transit projects for our region, you can give us your feedback by May 25 on a proposed amendment to the long-range transportation plan.

The Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC MPO) is now seeking public feedback on a proposed amendment to the Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP).  The CTP identifies future highway, transit, rail, bicycle, pedestrian and other transportation projects for this region over the next 30 years, and beyond. The DCHC MPO is amending the CTP to add a network of bicycle/pedestrian paths along major roadways, identify high capacity transit (such as bus rapid transit) along the region’s major travel corridors, ensure that the CTP supports local bicycle plans, and improve roadways in fast developing, rural areas.

Residents and other stakeholders are asked to provide comments by reviewing the proposed Amendment #3 at the DCHC MPO website and provide comments directly by email by Tuesday, May 25. Residents and stakeholders may also directly address the DCHC MPO Board on Amendment #3 on Wednesday, May 12 beginning at 9 a.m. during their virtual board meeting.
