Northeast Area Study Update

Wake and Franklin Counties

Welcome to the Northeast Area Study (NEAS) Update project webpage.


The study area includes 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 NEAS Update will involve extensive public engagement and an evaluation of transportation projects, policies, and priorities that may have evolved or shifted since the original study in 2014. Public engagement will include stakeholder meetings, community outreach and online activities (posted on this site), municipal board presentations, and more.

We look forward to your participation as you help us plan the future transportation network of the area. Sign up for project updates to stay in the loop, and feel free to contact the project team anytime through Brandon Watson, Project Manager, via email or phone 919-996-4397.

"The reality about transportation is that it's future-oriented. If we're planning for what we have, we're behind the curve."

--Anthony Foxx, former Secretary of Transportation
