DURHAM, N.C. – The Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC MPO) is seeking public feedback on the proposed 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) report, which will drive future policies and decision-making processes for highway, bicycle, pedestrian, and transit projects.
