Sexy, towering signs around downtown Durham beckon visitors. “Be downtown,” says one, suspended on the side of a building on Parrish Street. “Find your cool,” urges another sign in Five Points. But it’s hard to find your cool -- or anything else -- if you can’t get downtown.

Why? The Durham Loop, the one-way connector that surrounds downtown, seems to trouble even native Durhamites. City officials realize it's confusing, which is why they're now looking at changing the Loop to two-way traffic.

We've written a story with more details. For a more visual explanation, check out our interactive Google map that explains some of the points of contention. Have your own qualms? Add your points of concern to our map.

For the full blow-by-blow, the city also has posted the draft plan proposed by traffic engineers at Kimley-Horn.
