Comments Needed on Regional Transportation Plans
Comments sought by the Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization
The Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization — the group that is responsible for planning and programming state and federal transportation projects in our region — is seeking public comment on regional plans and an air quality report. There are several ways to provide comments.
Regional long-range transportation plan and air quality report
Weigh in on an amendment to transportation improvements included in the 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan, which identifies future highway, bus, rail, bicycle, pedestrian, and other transportation projects for this region over the next 30 years.
Also, please share feedback on the region’s Air Quality Conformity Determination Report, which demonstrates that the region will continue to attain air quality goals with the implementation of the amended long-range plan.
Regional short-range transportation plan
The Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization is seeking public comment on the draft Transportation Improvement Program 2024-2033.
Residents are encouraged to provide comments on both plans and the report directly to the Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization Board, either in person or virtually, at the board’s public hearing at 9 a.m. Wednesday, August 9. Request to speak at the hearing by contacting Transportation Planner Kelly Fomenko by email at email@example.com or by phone at 919-503-4119. The board meeting livestream also will be available for viewing.
