DURHAM, N.C. — The Durham County Board of Commissioners approved a letter from its Chair to the GoTriangle Board of Trustees, agreeing to fund the $57.6 million gap for the Durham-Orange light rail project, which was created after the N.C. General Assembly changed the funding makeup this summer, The Herald-Sun reports.
In June, GoTriangle said the project’s partners still needed to figure out how to fill the funding gap, with the board meeting several times over the summer before determining there was enough money in its dedicated local transit revenues to fund the project.
The Durham-Orange Light Rail Transit project is an 18-stop, 17.7-mile line that will run from UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill to N.C. Central University in Durham, with stops along the way including Duke University and downtown Durham. For the full story, click here.
