The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, in partnership with the Blue Ridge Road Corridor Work Group and Project Advisory Board, conducted a health impact assessment (HIA) to inform decisions affecting the small area plan in the 32-mile Blue Ridge Road Corridor (BRRC) in Raleigh, NC. Raleigh is among the 10 fastest-growing national urban centers and the Blue Ridge Road hosts major commercial, industrial, and institutional land uses, but pedestrian and bicycle connectivity among BRRC facilities and from neighboring residential areas is poor. Although the BRRC records the state’s highest pedestrian traffic counts, the availability of sidewalks and public transit is among the sparsest in North Carolina.
