Are you a fan of going places by foot or bike? Your opinion is important. Friday is the last day to complete a survey on this round of planning for the Triangle Bikeway Project.
Triangle area agencies are working together to plan a regional 17-mile, shared-use path linking Raleigh, Cary, Morrisville, Research Triangle Park, Durham and Chapel Hill that follows along the I-40 and NC54 corridors. The path will connect Triangle residents and visitors to jobs, popular destinations, trail networks and more across the region. It will include important connections to current and future transit stops to expand access to those who are traveling longer distances but don’t have the pedal, roll or stroll power for a lengthy trip or who need to reach a destination that isn’t along the bikeway.
Although it is called a bikeway, it isn’t just for bicyclists – it will be a shared-use path suitable for users of all ages and abilities both on foot and by bike. Shared-use paths are paved trails that are separated from vehicular traffic and used by both pedestrians and cyclists.
If you’re interested in helping to shape the plan, please visit the Triangle Bikeway website to watch a quick video and take the survey to share your priorities. If you’re going to be making a trip through Go Triangle’s Regional Transit Center on Thursday, July 15, you can find out more in-person by visiting GoTriangle and Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Association staff who will be on the platform between 6:45 and 9:15 a.m.
