More about the Hendersonville Road Corridor

The Hendersonville Road corridor is 5.4 miles, generally in a five-lane configuration with sidewalks in some sections and fixed-route transit service throughout the corridor. Extensive growth over the last few decades has generated increased traffic congestion.

As Buncombe County continues to grow, more development along the corridor is expected. The land use context along the corridor has changed significantly over the last few decades with numerous new retail and multi-family residential projects being developed. What was formerly just a north-south arterial is now seeing an increased demand for access to adjacent, developing properties. As a new decade begins, a better understanding of how this corridor performs is needed to lay out a vision for a complete, multi-modal Hendersonville Road that improves the quality of life and safety for all users and residents.

The Hendersonville Road Corridor Study will examine this roadway and propose strategies relating to congestion, pedestrian and cyclist safety, and connectivity along and across the road. To accomplish this, the project team will be collaborating closely with the City of Asheville, the French Broad River MPO, Buncombe County, NCDOT, as well as representatives of the communities and institutions along Hendersonville Road.
