The City of Durham Transportation Department held a public meeting on Wednesday, August 17, 2016, from 6-8pm in the Fellowship Hall of Mosaic Church (2031 W Club Blvd.) to discuss a restriping plan for West Club Boulevard. The Department provided responses to the comments received. Thepavement marking plan was developed in coordination with residents from the Watts-Hillandale Neighborhood Association and other stakeholder groups.
The project restriped West Club Boulevard between Hillandale Road and Broad Street to provide bicycle lanes and allow for better pedestrian visibility at intersections, as well as alternate the availability of parking from one side of the street to the other. The shift in parking availability occurs at each block, with the exception of the 2400 block where parking exists only on the north side of the street. By reducing the width of motor vehicle travel lanes, it's anticipated that speeds along West Club Boulevard will also decrease.
This project did not have resurfacing done prior to restriping. All work was done within the existing street and only affected the availability of parking for adjacent properties. Signage designating no parking was also be added.
Future resurfacing is anticipated and is contingent on road condition, future funding, and determination of need by Public Works.
