Resurfacing is an opportunity to restripe roadways to improve safety for people who walk, bike, use transit, and drive. Resurfacing occurs on State and City-owned and maintained roadways to improve and preserve pavement conditions. However, because this project uses roads that already exist, improvements are limited to changes to pavement paint markings. For example, you can improve or add bike lanes and crosswalks, but this project will not allow you to address needs beyond the width of the road, such as building a new sidewalk.
Additionally, changes proposed by the City to Liberty St. and Dillard St. which are State-owned roadways must adhere to NCDOT standards, so there may not be as many opportunities for improvements on these roadways.

A design team - Stantec Engineering, Brick & Story, and Just Cities Collective - was hired by the City of Durham to conduct field investigation and traffic analysis, develop design plans, and hold engagement meetings with stakeholders for the State-owned & maintained roadways. They began data collection in November 2023 and are in the traffic analysis and engagement phase.

This design project is City-funded through the Capital Improvements Program.
The City will host public open houses and pop-up meetings for each corridor in winter and early spring 2024. Beginning in January, City staff will host public open houses and pop-up events to discuss pavement marking changes for each roadway. Planners and engineers will attend these events to explain the work, gather feedback, and answer questions.
The public can drop in at any time during the scheduled open house event. Each event will have a roadway focus, but public comments can be collected for all project roads. A Spanish translator will be present, please contact [email protected] if other language assistance is needed.
