Crews for the NC Department of Transportation are scheduled to begin work to improve a prominent stretch of roadway in Carrboro and Chapel Hill. The work will begin Monday, May 23, and run through mid-August.
West Franklin Street/East Main Street will be milled and resurfaced between N.C. 86 and Jones Ferry Road over the coming months. A new traffic pattern will also be implemented to add bike lanes along this stretch. The new restriping plan will include turn lanes and bike lanes on E. Main Street in Carrboro.
Lane closures will be utilized for the duration of the project. Drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians are urged to be cautious when traveling through this work zone – for their own safety and that of the crews that will be working near the open travel lanes.
