About the Study
Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Connection
Triangle area agencies are working together to plan a regional, 17-mile, shared-use path linking Raleigh, Cary, Morrisville, Research Triangle Park (RTP), Durham, and Chapel Hill following the I-40 and NC54 corridor. The path will connect Triangle residents and visitors to jobs, popular destinations, trail networks, transit, and more, across the region. While the project is called a bikeway, it will be a shared-use path suitable for users of all ages and abilities both on foot and by bike. Shared-use paths are paved trails that are separated from vehicular traffic and used by both pedestrians and cyclists.
The study team would like to offer an update on the technical work that occurred over Winter 2020 and share details of the recommended route. Members of the community are invited to provide comments and questions on the recommendations and take the brief users survey to assist with the next stage of design work. The deadline to take the survey or leave comments is July 16, 2021.
Utilizing community input captured in Fall 2020, the project team evaluated over 100 miles of potential routes to develop a recommended alignment route. During the evaluation process, potential routes were studied to understand challenges and constraints.
