Biographical / Historical
The extension of Highway 147—also known as the Durham Freeway or the Durham Expressway—through the Crest Street neighborhood was part of the long and contentious process of building the road through the city. Crest Street is notable because the entire neighborhood was essentially moved to a new location, preserving community relationships in a way that was not done with other neighborhoods.
