Durham Hosts Hillandale Road Bike & Pedestrian Facilities Meeting
Drop-In Style Meeting to Collect Resident Input on Preferred Alternative Design Plan
If you live, work, or travel along Hillandale Road in Durham, you’ll want to mark your calendar for a meeting later this month to review the preferred alternative for bicycle and pedestrian designs for this busy road.
The City of Durham Public Works Department has prepared the preferred alternative design for bicycle and pedestrian facilities along Hillandale Road from I-85 to the NC Highway 147, and staff wants to share their work to date and get resident input.
The drop-in style meeting is set for Monday, June 18 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Durham Public Schools Staff Development Center Cafeteria, located at 2107 Hillandale Road. Residents will be able to review the preferred alternative design, ask questions of Public Works staff, and provide input before the department completes the final design work. For residents who can’t attend the June 18 meeting, maps and a comment form to collect their feedback will be available on the project website on June 8.
This is a bicycle and pedestrian project only, so it will not include road widening to expand the traffic capacity or the intersections within this corridor. This is the second community meeting to collect resident input for this project. The first meeting was held in January 2018. Public Works staff plans to schedule a third community meeting in the future for this project after receiving input during this month’s meeting, and completing a detailed design of the preferred option.
