Blount Street - Person Street Corridor Study
The Blount Street - Person Street Corridor Study will identify multi-modal transportation and streetscape design options and programmatic strategies to improve the corridors, with a particular focus on how transportation and streetscape strategies impact placemaking and economic development. The study will take into account the numerous previous studies and initiatives that impact the corridors, and will involve extensive stakeholder input and a thorough understanding of community values, history, and future development scenarios.
A draft of the Blount Street Person Street Corridor Study is available for for review and we are soliciting public comment. Please submit your comments via phone or email to Grant Meacci, Grant.Meacci@raleighnc.gov, 919-996-4637. The review period will be open for 30 days.

The City of Raleigh is beginning a corridor study examining the Blount Street - Person Street Corridors from the I-40/Hammond Road interchange to the Capital Boulevard/Atlantic Avenue intersection.
The 2010 transportation bond funding enabled the city to hire the team of AECOM, with subconsultants Alta Design & Planning and Susan Hatchell Landscape Architecture, PLLC to complete the project. This multidisciplinary project team has strong experience in multimodal transportation analysis, streetscape and urban design, and community outreach and engagement.
