Through the Safe Streets and Roads for All Grant Program, Durham will receive $500,000, Raleigh will receive $800,000 and Fayetteville will get $400,000. The funding for the new program is fueled by the president’s Infrastructure law. It seeks to reduce traffic fatalities by improving road conditions.

In a statement, the Director of the Durham Chapel Hill Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization expounded on the program’s importance. “Traffic fatalities are very traumatic for everyone and serious injuries. There’s a huge emotional burden and cost that happens. They have lingering effects for a very long time, and the reality is, many of these crashes are avoidable or preventable entirely.”
