The project logo Blount St & Person St, Phase II - Corridor User Survey

The Blount Street – Person Street Corridor Study was adopted in 2013, before the Downtown Transportation Plan or Wake County Transit Plan were in consideration, and before a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project was conceived.  Accordingly, the Blount Street – Person Street Two-Way Traffic Conversion Project will be developed keeping these other plans’ objectives in consideration.

The Downtown Transportation Plan has objectives related to all modes of travel and talks about assigning streets a modal priority and how to balance tradeoffs within a downtown setting.  It also discusses how high-quality BRT and bicycle facilities can impact other desirable street features like on-street parking and loading zones. (The portion of the Blount Street – Person Street Corridor that is considered “Downtown” is between Shaw University and William Peace University.)

The Wake County Transit Plan includes increased transit funding that will bring Frequent Transit Routes with the goal of 15-minute interval service for 18 hours a day.  The BRT project will further study the use of BRT lanes and stations by these Frequent Routes and by Express Buses to provide a broader range of service for these time-saving investments. 

The City will need the approval of the North Carolina Department of Transportation for this project because Blount Street and Person Street are NCDOT-owned and maintained streets.

Before completing this survey, please see the City’s project page on the Two-Way conversion project for the latest information.

Given the ongoing project to bring Bus Rapid Transit service to Downtown Raleigh, and the interest to offer better multi-modal travel options for the public, please tell us about yourself and your preferences through the following survey:
