TRAFFIC AND TRANSPORTATION

Cars drive by the entrance to North Chapel Hill Baptist Church, on Monday, Jan. 28, 2019, in Chapel Hill, NC. The church and it's adjacent graveyard, located at the intersection of Interstate 40 and Eubanks Road, will be effected if the North Carolina Department of Transportation keeps it's originally proposed Interstate 40 widening plan.

So, are they widening I-40 or not?

The NCDOT was forced back to the drawing board when it was discovered that their work on the interchange on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard would be forcing residents out of their homes.

Light rail project is possible again but has tight deadline

“They had strong political backers, big funders of theirs calling them up and questioning them on why were they going to do this crazy thing." This light rail project has faced stops when it came to federal and state level funding. A recent bill has set a new path to completion, but tight deadlines may mean going back to square one.
