[ARCHIVED] DCHC MPO Seeks Comment on 30-Year Plan for Future Transportation Priorities


DURHAM, N.C. – If you’re interested in helping to shape our region’s transportation future, now’s your chance to give feedback on the process to identify highway, transit, rail, bicycle, and pedestrian projects that are needed to meet our growth.

The Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC MPO) is now seeking public feedback on their proposed goals and objectives and public engagement plan for the 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP).  The 2050 MTP will identify future highway, transit, rail, bicycle, pedestrian, and other transportation projects for this region over the next 30 years. The goals and objectives will guide the selection of these transportation projects, and the public engagement plan will define the process for receiving input on the 2050 MTP as it develops.

Residents and other stakeholders are asked to provide comments by completing this online survey in English or Spanish, or visiting the DCHC MPO website and providing comments by email by Wednesday, August 5.

Residents and stakeholders may also directly address the DCHC MPO Board on these two items on Wednesday, August 12, beginning at 9 a.m. during their virtual board meeting. The August 12 virtual meeting will also be streamed live on the DCHC MPO’s Facebook page.

For more information about the 2050 MTP, contact DCHC MPO Principal Planner Andrew Henry at (919) 560-4366, ext. 36419 or by email.
