Project Status

Kimley-Horn and Associates of Raleigh, NC has been hired as the design firm to prepare plans, obtain permits, and hold informational meetings with stakeholders.  They began data collection in February 2018. Currently the project is in the right-of-way acquisition phase of the project.

The City of Durham Public Works Department prepared designs for pedestrian facilities along North Duke Street from West Murray Avenue to North Roxboro Street, and City staff solicited community input during the design process with two community input meetings.

The goal of the project is to improve pedestrian accommodations with proposed improvements include sidewalk, curb ramps, pedestrian crossings, and associated pavement markings.
