Durham NC East End Connector Visualization
The East End Connector project in Durham County, North Carolina was conceived to create a freeway link between major interstates in the central part of the state in an industrialized area that lacked connectivity.
The project consisted of four interchanges in just over two miles of mainline roadway and required twelve bridges including the span of a seven track railroad switch yard with accommodations for future light rail. Presenting a representation to the local community of what to expect when the project was complete was instrumental in the success of the project.
The East End Connector visualization allowed viewers to gain an understanding of the complexity of the project and how it would ultimately effect traffic flow.
