Orange County Resurfacing Project Set to Begin

​ORANGE COUNTY – Work to improve a prominent stretch of roadway in Chapel Hill and Carrboro is set to begin next week.

West Franklin Street/East Main Street will be milled and resurfaced between N.C. 86 and Jones Ferry Road over the coming months. A new traffic pattern will also be implemented to add bike lanes along this stretch.

The work is scheduled to begin Monday, May 23 and run through mid-August, weather permitting.

Lane closures will be utilized for the duration of the project. Drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians are urged to be cautious when travelling through this work zone – for their own safety and that of the crews that will be working near the open travel lanes.
