The MPOs unanimous vote to approve the NEPA Preferred Alternative is another milestone in efforts to build the Durham-Orange Light Rail Transit Project. The Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization has heard from citizens, business leaders, and neighborhood and community groups over the last three years and GoTriangle has met with over 5,500 people to get their feedback on the project. 

GoTriangle thanks the DCHCMPO Board for its leadership in supporting regional solutions to our transportation needs.  We believe the Durham-Orange Light Rail Transit Project provides the best solution for the Durham to Chapel Hill corridor.  We are working on the Final Environmental Impact Statement and anticipate the FEIS and Record of Decision on the project in early 2016 and hope to move the project into engineering next year.
