Agenda Text
The Board is requested to receive a presentation and provide comments on the NC 98 Corridor Study Report.

Summary. The Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC MPO) and Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) conducted a study, in conjunction with WSP, starting in late 2016, regarding the NC 98 Corridor in Durham, Wake, and Franklin Counties. The study involved evaluation of safety and mobility along 27 miles of the existing NC 98, and recommendations for short and long-term improvements to intersections, lane widening, and pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure. In June, a full draft report was produced with recommendations for the NC 98 Corridor. In the 30-day comment period until the final plan is to be adopted by the DCHC MPO and CAMPO Boards, local government boards and commissions are also asked to provide their comments on the NC 98 Draft Report.
