In 2006, Phase 1 of the U.S. 1 Corridor Study was completed in collaboration between the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, N.C. Department of Transportation, City of Raleigh, Triangle Transit and the Town of Wake Forest. The Capital Boulevard upgrade is included in the area studied during Phase 1, and the Corridor Study serves as the starting point for further analysis of this project.
The U.S. 1 Council of Planning is a work group dedicated to maintaining the implementation of the U.S. 1 Corridor Study. The council is made up of municipalities and counties that have direct jurisdiction over land use ordinances within the Corridor Study Area or public investments along the corridor, inter-governmental planning organizations with administrative duties for transportation planning along the U.S. 1 Corridor and NCDOT.
