Downtown Loop 2-Way Conversion Feasibility Study (2010) 


The City of Durham commissioned Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc. to conduct a traffic feasibility study for converting the downtown loop, which is currently 1-way, into a 2-way corridor. The study was completed in 2010. 

The City has been interested in converting the downtown loop to improve vehicular and pedestrian access and flow and to spur economic redevelopment in the downtown core. The cost of such a conversion has been estimated at $12-25 million depending on the type of streetscape modifications and improvements. This project does not currently have funding for implementation.
