2023 CMAQ Bicycle Lanes

With the help of federal CMAQ (Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality) grant funding, the City will install the bike lanes this fiscal year. 

Important Update:

Fayetteville Street has been removed from the CMAQ bike lanes construction contract, reducing the total project mileage from approximately 8 miles to 7.5 miles of streets with new bike lanes. Work on the remaining portions of the CMAQ bike lanes project is expected to begin in Fall 2023 and be completed in Spring 2024.

NCDOT owns and maintains Fayetteville Street. NCDOT has determined that the bike lanes should not be installed due to traffic congestion concerns. However, NCDOT is open to further review of any options that can minimize traffic impacts while also addressing bicycle and pedestrian deficiencies along this corridor. In the meantime, the City of Durham will move forward with the installation of the remainder of the CMAQ bike lanes project. The City is also working to update designs for improved pedestrian crossings at the intersections of Fayetteville & Lakewood and Fayetteville & Umstead that were to be incorporated in the CMAQ bike lanes project and will be implementing those separately from the bike lane project.

The City of Durham Transportation Department will post monthly project updates on our social media account @movesafedurham and in the monthly Way to Go Durham newsletter. You can sign up for the newsletter here. Please reach out to Bill Judge at the City of Durham, [email protected], with any questions or feedback.
