Larger Pipe, Less Flooding Risk Along Orange County Road

Greensboro - Department of Transportation contractors will start replacing an undersized storm drainpipe with a larger aluminum culvert on South Greensboro Street between N.C. 54 and Rand Road in Carrboro on Monday, Dec. 5, prompting flagging operations for the next month. "This work is necessary to address the risk of flooding of the roadway and adjacent homes and businesses," said Division Seven Engineer Mike Mills. Work will take place daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Monday, Jan. 9, 2017, weather permitting. "This first phase of work is being coordinated with similar drainage upgrades being performed by the adjacent South Green development property owners which will further improve drainage in this flood-prone area," said Division Seven Assistant Resident Engineer Tommy Byrd. While the road will remain open during construction work, flaggers will be working alongside traffic. The department encourages motorists to pay attention when approaching the work zone, obey the posted speed limit, and allow extra time to reach their destinations safely.
