Construction on the center island for the Hillsborough Street roundabout continues and the first of the center brick medians have been going in as well.

During the week of February 1 through 5, construction crews will be conducting the following activities:

  • Continued work on the Oberlin/Pullen roundabout center island;
  • Continued work on the Hillsborough/Pullen roundabout center island;
  • Installation of sewer and water lines on the south side of Hillsborough Street starting at Pogue  Street heading west to Gardner Street (2700 blocks), with some crossings across Hillsborough Street;
  • Installation of curb and gutter on Enterprise Street approach to Hillsborough Street;
  • Various utility work along Oberlin Road and the south side of Hillsborough Street;
  • Potential utility work and conduit system installation on the north side of Hillsborough Street near The Alley bowling alley (2600 block);
  • Continued median work from Oberlin Road to Enterprise Road;
  • Installation of curb and gutter, brick sidewalk pavers, and paving on the south side of Hillsborough Street from Chamberlian Street heading west towards Horne Street (2300-2400 blocks); and
  • Grading and preparation of various sites for future construction activities.

Vehicles: Traffic delays on Hillsborough Street are expected between Logan Court and Gardner Street, with one-lane operations at times.

Temporary traffic delays at the intersection of Hillsborough Street and Pullen Road at times due to the movement of equipment for the island construction.

Oberlin Road is now open to one-way traffic northbound.

The Oberlin Road parking lot for Red Hot + Blue, Player’s Retreat, and Sam & Bill’s remains open for customers. Oberlin Road access to BB&T remains open as well.

Horne and Lampe Streets approaching Hillsborough Street are closed due to utility construction work, but Horne Street is expected to open this week.

Pedestrians: Crosswalks and campus entrances remain open near Horne Street and the Alley (formerly Western Lanes) in the busiest construction area. Numerous crosswalks are in place elsewhere along the street.

Sidewalks on the north side of Hillsborough Street from Logan Court to Enterprise Street are closed due to construction activity. Pedestrian traffic will be shifted to the sidewalks on the south side of Hillsborough Street, now completed.

Look for a project newsletter this week detailing our project progress, traffic patterns during the roundabout construction, and measures the construction crews will take to keep the sidewalks and doorways open during when construction moves to the north side of the street.

Hillsborough Street businesses remain open for business. Please patronize your local businesses as we work to build the community’s new vision for Hillsborough Street.

Remember that the Krispy Kreme Challenge is on Feb. 6. Runners will assemble on the 2100 block of Hillsborough Street.  Pullen Street will be closed from the roundabout one block off Hillsborough to Hillsborough from ~7:30 to 11 a.m. on Feb. 6.  Hillsborough Street will be closed from Enterprise to Woodburn and Boylan to Woodburn from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.  St Mary’s Street closed from Peace to Hillsborough St from 8:15 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.   The race should be over and all traffic will be reopened by 11 a.m. on Saturday.
