Northeast Area Study Update

Wake and Franklin Counties

Welcome to the Northeast Area Study Update website! #NEASupdate

The study area included parts of Franklin and Wake Counties, the City of Raleigh, as well as the Towns of Bunn, Franklinton, Knightdale, Rolesville, Wake Forest, Wendell, Youngsville, and Zebulon.

The study team released draft recommendations for biking, walking, rail, bus, and roadway projects in the study area in February 2021. Our second round of engagement concluded in March 2021, but you can still view survey results <here>.


The study team is committed to a digitally accessible website and project. Primary materials are available through direct links or PDFs, as well as translated in Spanish, <here>.

For questions or accessibility needs, please reach out to: Brandon Watson, Project Manager, at 919-996-4397.
