Northeast Area Study Update

Wake and Franklin Counties

Welcome to the Northeast Area Study Update website.

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 has concluded its initial round of public engagement and is now in the second half of the planning process. Thank you to everyone who provided their input on the direction land use, transportation, and regional growth should take in the coming decades. During the second half of this planning process, we’ll incorporate your feedback, along with other data gathered along the way, and develop draft recommendations for the area’s transportation network. Be on the lookout for more opportunities for public involvement in the next few months as we release these draft recommendations for feedback and comment.​​

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.
