Woodcroft Parkway Extension Project

Project Overview and Background

The City of Durham is extending Woodcroft Parkway west from its current terminus at Hope Valley Road (NC 751) to a new intersection with Garrett Road, in front of C.E Jordan High School. The project will reduce traffic congestion at the intersection of Garrett Road and Hope Valley Road, and provide a safer multi-modal connection between C.E. Jordan High School and surrounding neighborhoods.

This project is currently on hold due to coordination with NCDOT funding. Timelines below are subject to change.

Needs to be addressed:
