Durham-Orange Corridor

Thank you for your interest in the Durham-Orange Light Rail Transit Project.

The Durham-Orange corridor has some of the highest projected trips in the region. This corridor includes 3 major universities, three major medical centers and a number of residential and commercial areas.

Light Rail was chosen for this corridor because it serves urban and suburban areas with close stops well, provides solid anchors that help shape land use along the corridor and it serves people in the corridor more cost-effectively in the long term.

Look at the information below, use our survey to tell us what you think of the project and if you have any questions send an email to info@ourtransitfuture.com.

Please note: GoTriangle is hopeful that U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will will publish the Notice of Availability for the D-O LRT Project’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Draft Section 4(f) Evaluation in the “Federal Register” on Friday August 28, 2015, thus beginning the formal 45-day public review and comment period. GoTriangle anticipates that the review and comment period will end on October 12, 2015. Questions/comments submitted during the public comment period Comments received will NOT receive a reply. Responses to substantive comments will be provided in the combined Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS)/Record of Decision (ROD).
