Smith Warehouse, Bay 11, 2nd Floor
Durham, NC, 27708
From downtown, the best way to reach Smith Warehouse is via Buchanan Blvd. Smith Warehouse is located at 114 S. Buchanan Blvd., but its parking and points of entry are located on Maxwell Avenue.
From Highway 147 South, take exit 14 for Swift Avenue. At the top of the exit ramp, turn right. Follow Swift Avenue down the hill to the four-way stop at Campus Drive. Turn left onto Campus Drive. Take your first right onto Maxwell Avenue. Smith Warehouse is located at the top of the hill. Visitor parking is the first right before you reach the top of the hill.
From Highway 147 North, take exit 13 for Chapel Hill Street. At the top of the ramp, turn right. Cross the bridge over 147 and turn right onto S. Buchanan Blvd. Turn left onto Maxwell Avenue and follow the street down to the opposite end of Smith Warehouse, where Bay 12 is located.
A paid visitor parking area is located directly across from Bay 1 on Maxwell Ave. Some free visitor parking is available on the north side of Bay 1 (next to the railroad tracks) just inside the black fence on the right (across from a loading dock). Free parking may also be available on Pettigrew Street across from the Center for Documentary Studies.
The Duke Smith Bus (CSW) runs between Duke’s East and West campuses, stopping at Bay 6 on Maxwell Ave. Alternatively, visitors may take the C-1 bus from East or West campus and walk up the hill from the stop at Campus Drive and Maxwell Ave. The Bull City Connector passes by on Main Street, making the lab accessible from downtown and from the Duke Hospital area.
