Welcome to the NC 54 Corridor Study Website. The purpose of this study is to better understand how the NC 54 corridor is utilized and document the unique resources along this historic route.
The project team will use this website, and other tools, to engage with residents and commuters along the corridor. Please share your comments or questions with us and help us identify what locations make this corridor unique or challenging.
The NC 54 Corridor Study is an in-depth review of the 20+ mile stretch of NC 54 between Old Fayetteville Road in Carrboro and I-85 in Graham. This regionally significant roadway helps 6,000 to 15,000 vehicles per day reach work, schools, and stores, so local governments are interested in opportunities and strategies to improve the roadway and support the communities alongside it.
