An information table regarding S-Line transit-oriented development work will be outside of Rachel’s Whistle Stop at 123 Hyco Street in Norlina on Friday, December 2nd, from 11am-1pm. During this time, consultants working with the NC DOT Rail Division will update community members on the development study being conducted in communities that have the potential for an S-Line rail stop.
The information table is a floating event, and residents are encouraged to come anytime between 11am and 1pm.
Warren County is continuing work with the North Carolina Department of Transportation Integrated Mobility Division to look into transit-oriented development planning initiatives involving the S-Line route in North Carolina. The S-Line is a rail line that connects from Richmond, Virginia down to Tampa, Florida.
The State of North Carolina’s S-Line project includes six other communities in the region that fall along a 95-mile-long section of the S-Line rail corridor including Apex, Franklinton, Henderson, Raleigh, Sanford, Wake Forest, and Youngsville.
Transit-oriented development has a goal to connect communities and public spaces by increasing accessibility without having to rely on a personal vehicle. An important aspect of this study is public engagement.
