Daylong Closure Set for Old Durham Road in Chapel Hill

CHAPEL HILL — N.C. Department of Transportation contractors plan to close a segment of Old Durham Road on Monday, Sept. 14 for utility work.

About 250 feet of the road will be closed between Scarlet Drive and the entrance to Hardee's from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. to allow crews to tie in a new 12-inch water line.

The detour will use U.S. 15-501, Eastowne Drive and East Lakeview Drive to get around the closure.

Drivers should allow extra time for the detour and pay extra attention while driving near the work zone.

​This work is part of a project to add bicycle lanes, crosswalks and sidewalks to Old Durham/Old Chapel Hill Road between U.S. 15-501 and Pope Road. Work is scheduled to be completed by November 2021.
