The objective of the Avent Ferry Road Corridor Study is to develop a vision for the character of the corridor’s public realm and adjacent land uses into the future. The information gathered in conjunction with public meetings and other means will provide a framework of data, observations, and community input that will serve as the basis for the study.

Status Updates

The city has selected ColeJenest and Stone as the primary consultant for the Avent Ferry Road Corridor Study. ColeJenest and Stone, along with WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff and Rose and Associates, will help lead the Corridor Study.

City staff and the consultants kicked off the corridor study on March 27 with a public meeting. Over 50 people attended the event held at the NCSU McKimmon Center. The public was invited to ask questions of staff and the consultants, provide input on what makes the corridor great and what improvements they would like to see, and build on the input received at the visioning workshop in April 2016. During the session, staff had attendees participate in a survey to share their ideas on ways to improve the corridor.

Couldn’t attend the meeting, but still want to provide your feedback?

The city has made the survey available online for people to complete as well. Please click on the link to access the survey and provide your feedback.

Responses to the survey will be accepted through May 31. The consultants will use the input from the public meeting and the online survey to develop an Issues and Opportunities Report, the next step in the corridor planning process. The report will contain a summary of public feedback, as well as an analysis of existing conditions as they relate to transportation, land use, and urban design in the corridor. The report is scheduled to be released in June.
