Cornwallis Road Bicycle Improvements

Cornwallis Road between South Roxboro and Fayetteville Street is currently 60' wide with a posted speed limit of 35mph. The proposed improvements will narrow the road from five lanes to three lanes, and add buffered bicycle facilities. It will connect to planned bicycle facilities on Cornwallis between South Roxboro and Chapel Hill Road, South Roxboro from Cornwallis Road to Summit Street, and bicycle facilities on Fayetteville Street from Cornwallis Road to Nelson Street.

This bicycle improvement project is funded by a Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program Grant through NCDOT.

You can view the proposed cross-section below, and the full design here. Comments received during the September 2018 public meeting and online comment period will be incorporated where possible.

The re-striping work is estimated to begin Fall 2023 and end Summer 2024.
