  • Continued work on the Oberlin/Pullen roundabout;
  • Continued work on the Hillsborough/Pullen roundabout;
  • Installation of curb and gutter, brick sidewalk pavers, and paving on the north side of Hillsborough Street from Enterprise Street to Logan Court (2200 block);

  • Prep work and removal of decommissioned overhead utility lines and poles along Hillsborough Street; and
  • Grading and preparation of various sites for future construction activities.

TRAFFIC UPDATE
Vehicles: Minor 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 and Lampe Street have been reopened to traffic.

The Oberlin Road parking lot for Locopops, 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 completely to the south side over the next two weeks, 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.

The sidewalks along the south side of Hillsborough Street beside NC State will be completed by the end of March.

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 in the area.

Sidewalks on the north side of Hillsborough Street from Jimmy Johns to Horne Street remain open but have been narrowed as crews work to demolish existing curb and gutter.  This narrowing will move west along the street as crews continue the work towards Garner 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.
