Survey participants sought for University area thoroughfare study

Monday, September 16, 2019

UNC Charlotte, University City Partners, Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT) and North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) are conducting a University Area Thoroughfares Study in order to improve access and safety for pedestrians, bicyclists and motor vehicles that may enter and exit UNC Charlotte’s main campus. The study is in the initial public involvement phase that includes a survey, in which all University stakeholders (faculty, staff, students and visitors) are encouraged to participate.

The goals of this study are to consider user needs pertaining to conflicts at all existing and future points of campus ingress and egress; identify the need for additional points of entry and determine when these may be needed; and identify the best practices to improve safety, provide high-quality pedestrian and bicycle accommodation and improve predictability for access points considering all modes of transportation.

As a University surrounded by a growing city, transportation flow on campus is impactful to all entities. By completing the survey, members of the campus community will be able to share their opinions and feedback on future changes.

This survey will be open for about a month and should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Candid responses are encouraged. Participants can also choose to be entered into a prize drawing.
