Transportation planning is often coordinated between the Town, local and regional organizations. These agencies include Granville County, Kerr-Tar Regional Planning Organization (RPO) and Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO). Transportation planning is often considered as limited to efforts made to improve personal vehicular traffic patterns yet includes planning for greenways, sidewalks, buses and trains, and other alternative modes of transportation.
Comprehensive Transportation Plan Survey
We need YOUR input!
Granville County, NC DOT and partners are working to develop a Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) for Granville County. This plan will recommend improvements to the transportation system throughout the county for the next 25-30 years and for all modes of transportation including highways, public transportation, bicycle, and pedestrian facilities. A key part of both the plan and information gathering process is citizen input. The final plan will provide a ‘road map’ for improvements and for a more sustainable future in Granville County. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey by November 18, 2016. All answers are anonymous and will only be used for the purpose of public input for this plan. Paper copies will be available at the Granville County Planning Department (122 Williamsboro Street, Oxford, NC 27565) or at your local City or Town Hall. Thank you for your participation!
East End Connector
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NC DOT) is in the development stage of constructing the East End Connector in Durham. The proposed project would provide a direct connection between the Durham Freeway (NC 147) and US 70 (Miami Blvd.), as well as make improvements to US 70 from Pleasant Drive to north of Holloway Street (NC 98).
NC 56 Corridor Study
The Town is partnering with the City of Creedmoor, Granville County and CAMPO for the NC 56 Corridor Study project. VHB Engineering NC, P.C. was selected as the firm to help guide and execute this study. The study encompasses 4.5 miles from 33rd Street in Butner through Creedmoor to the east. Currently a fairly typical two-lane roadway, it presents transportation challenges given its topography, multiple land uses, poor access management, substantial truck volumes, and traffic volumes ranging from 15,000 to 9,000 vehicles per day. There are no facilities for bicycle and pedestrian access. The purpose of the study is to create an integrated strategy of short-term operational improvements, long-range infrastructure investments, and coordinated land use/development policies in order to preserve and enhance the corridor’s environmental resources and economic vitality.
