Duke is updating its 2017 Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan. This updated version of the plan will assess existing conditions for walking and biking on campus, including gaps in the sidewalk and bikeway network, evaluate progress on key projects since 2017, and guide future infrastructure projects that will help make walking, biking, and rolling on campus safer and more convenient for staff, faculty, students, and visitors. The plan will also be used to guide the phasing of proposed projects, and will include considerations for micromobility, reflecting the changing transportation needs and choices of the campus community.
While informed by existing conditions and broader planning efforts, this Bike/Pedestrian plan will focus on Duke-specific infrastructure projects on campus. For thoughts regarding bike and pedestrian access to Duke from the surrounding community, we encourage you to engage with the City of Durham’s planning process. The University is also a part of these ongoing transportation planning conversations within Durham and regionally.
The Plan supports Duke’s goals of becoming a carbon neutral campus and reducing single-occupancy vehicle travel, traffic, and parking congestion. Informed by the Campus Master Plan, which provides an overall vision for campus, the Plan focuses on the implementation of projects to improve walking, biking, and micromobility at Duke.
This project is being led by Duke University Facilities Management, Parking & Transportation, and the Office of Climate and Sustainability with support from project consultants, Alta Planning + Design.
The survey and input map are now closed. Please check back for updates on the development of the draft plan.
This planning process will be completed by the end of 2023.
