The City of Durham and the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will resurface and then upgrade pavement marking designs on 11 roadways within the city limits, starting in early spring.
Roads will receive updated pavement designs based on current conditions and community input.
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 currently are in the traffic analysis and engagement phase.
