Project History

2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan

When project planning began, the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization and Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization jointly developed a 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan. This plan identifies the U.S. 70 project as regionally significant and describes it as a six-lane freeway facility.

Durham Comprehensive Transportation Plan

The Comprehensive Transportation Plan was adopted by Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization on May 10, 2017 and the N.C. Board of Transportation on Aug. 3, 2017. The 2040 Comprehensive Transportation Plan identifies U.S. 70 as a freeway.

On Feb. 19, 2022, the Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization adopted a 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan. This updated plan now identifies U.S. 70 as a 4-lane modernization road project.

Coordination with Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization on the project will continue.‚Äč
