Southeast Area Study Update

The North Carolina Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is inviting qualified consulting firms or persons to submit Project Proposals to conduct an area study in the southeastern portion of CAMPO that includes parts of Wake and Johnston Counties. The Request for Proposals presents a desired set of work tasks to prepare a work product that will ultimately lay out a long-term vision for a multi-modal transportation network in the study area, with a detailed implementation strategy that includes short-term and mid-term recommendations to aid with the implementation of the long-term vision. The study will evaluate the safety and mobility in the transportation network, including planned and existing roads, transit service and bicycle/pedestrian facilities.

This study is anticipated to be completed in approximately 19 months with a Notice to Proceed issued in December 2021.

Project Background   draft of study area map

The southeastern area of the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization consists of all or part of four municipalities (City of Raleigh, Towns of Garner, Clayton, and Archer Lodge) and portions of two counties (Wake and Johnston). In addition to the southeastern area of the Capital Area MPO, the study area for this project will extend to the I-95 corridor in Johnston County and include all or parts of the Towns of Benson, Four Oaks, Kenly, Micro, Selma, Smithfield, and Wilson’s Mills. Much of the area is experiencing suburban type growth and development along with higher levels of traffic congestion at many key intersections. Future construction of I-540 in Wake County and future designation of I-42 in Johnston County should be considered, laying out expectations updating the roadway network and analyzing future growth patterns. Regional connectivity is key in with future transit investments including bus rapid transit, commuter rail and the East Coast Greenway and Mountains to Sea Trail inside the study area. This study will update the MPO’s overall Comprehensive Transportation Plan and will produce project priorities  appropriate for inclusion in the next fiscally-constrained Metropolitan Transportation Plan. Portions of the study area have been included in previous planning efforts such as the Johnston County Comprehensive Transportation Plan and other local plans.
