News Release from the Town of Chapel Hill -- Note to Carrboro Residents: The Town of Chapel Hill invites your feedback and participation as well!
The Town of Chapel Hill is proposing to add bike lanes to Culbreth Road as part of a scheduled resurfacing and repaving project by the NC DOT this summer.
The Culbreth repaving project will start as early as July 1 and is scheduled to be completed before the start of the school year in August. As part of this resurfacing, the Town of Chapel Hill is looking at adding bike lanes on Culbreth Road, as included in the Mobility & Connectivity Plan. This would be accomplished by narrowing vehicle lanes and removing the center turn lane. This change would keep the left turn into the kiss-and-go driveway at Culbreth Middle School, the left turn into Adams Way, and the intersections of Smith Level Road and US Highway 15-501.
The Town of Chapel Hill modeled the changes in the town-wide traffic model and found little to no delay as a result of removing the turn lanes. For full details on the analysis and the proposed lane changes, visit the project’s webpage at https://www.townofchapelhill.org/government/departments-services/planning/transportation-planning/culbreth-lane-reallocation
