The proposed Triangle Bikeway would connect Raleigh, Cary, Research Triangle Park (RTP), southern Durham and Chapel Hill together. This initiative will not only offer a safer alternative transportation route but also promote a cleaner environment.
This short two minute video gives an overview of the study — and the opportunity. You can also view this animation, commissioned by RTA and created by RTA Gold member McAdams, to get a better sense of what the bikeway might look like.
The bikeway will connect the region, traveling roughly parallel to, and often within the right-of-way of, the Interstate 40 corridor between west Raleigh and southwest Durham, directly linking portions of Cary, Morrisville, and Research Triangle Park. The bikeway would then follow the highway 54 corridor to connect southwest Durham with Chapel Hill.
As noted on the project webpage, the 17 mile long path will connect Triangle residents and visitors to jobs, popular destinations, municipal trail networks, and current and future transit.
You can visit the Triangle Bikeway website for more information.
