TRAFFIC UPDATE
Vehicles: Traffic delays on Hillsborough Street are expected between Chamberlain Street and Gardner Street, with limited periods one-lane operations.

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

Horne Street is now open to one-way traffic southbound, and Lampe Street will be open as construction crews move to the 2500 block for sidewalk construction (after paving and curb & gutter).

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.

Limited on-street parking is available now on Hillsborough Street.  When traffic is shifted south in March, on-street parking will be available on the south side of the street.

Pedestrians: Crosswalks and campus entrances remain open at Horne and Lampe Streets and at Gardner Street  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 can use the completed sidewalks on the south side of Hillsborough Street.

EVENTS UPDATE
See the previously posted project newsletter for details on our project progress, roundabout traffic patterns, and measures the construction crews will take to keep the sidewalks and doorways open when construction moves to the north side of the street.
