NCDOT’s summer resurfacing work begins next week. NCDOT has engaged Carolina Sunrock as the prime contractor for the resurfacing of Merritt Road from Rosemary Street to South Greensboro Street. The project will include modifying the existing street cross section to remove the existing center turn lane and add new bike lanes, and green pavement markings.
Fulcher, the project subcontractor, is scheduled to begin signal loop installation along Merritt Mill Road on Tuesday, May 23 - 26 with lane closures from 9 a.m. to Sunset. NO WORK will be allowed during the Memorial holiday restriction from Sunset on Friday, May 26 until 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 30.
Motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, and emergency vehicles will have access through the work zone at all times. This work should take approximately two weeks and the work area will be specific to the intersections and short in length with minimal traffic disruption.
Utility adjustments are currently scheduled beginning May 30 – June 9, Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to Sunset. The milling and paving operation will proceed after utility adjustments, with an anticipated date of mid-June or later and this will be a more intrusive operation. NCDOT will provide message boards to advertise the milling and paving once the contractor has scheduled accordingly. The milling and paving will also require lane closures Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to Sunset.
