Please note the new traffic pattern and continue to use caution. Learn more at http://www.townofcarrboro.org/2368/East-Main-Street-Restriping
Paving work in Chapel Hill will continue Sunday night at 8 p.m. along Franklin Street eastbound (right lane) and the crew will begin paving westbound (right lane) mid-shift Sunday night. Additional “New Traffic Pattern” signs have been installed throughout the route including Rosemary Street. The temporary pavement markings are being installed as paving progresses to continue to provide necessary guidance for motorists. To limit disturbance on local businesses and traffic, work will occur at night 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. - Sunday through Wednesday, Thursday 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.. No work to occur after 6 a.m. on Friday or any time on Saturday.
Traffic and signal patterns will change in some areas. Drivers should use caution and stay alert. Sidewalks should remain open.
