Northeast Area Study

The Northeast Area Study (NEAS) was initiated by CAMPO to identify a sustainable transportation strategy for the growing communities of Wake Forest, Knightdale, Raleigh, Wendell, Zebulon, Rolesville, Bunn, Franklinton, and Youngsville. This region encompasses 374 square miles of a unique mix of a large metropolitan area, small towns, suburbs and farming communities painted across a broad expanse of rural tapestry in both eastern Wake and southern Franklin counties. Wake County is the 9th fastest growing county in the United States, and Franklin County has proved similarly attractive due to resources and proximity to major metropolitan employers as well as the Research Triangle.
