Posted Tuesday, Jan. 23

Beginning on Saturday, Jan. 27, at 6 a.m., Hillsborough Street between Brooks Avenue and Faircloth Street will be closed to through traffic as part of construction related to the Hillsborough Street Renewal Project. This street is scheduled to reopen on Monday, Jan. 29, at 6 a.m.

During the detour, Pipeline Utilities will be completing a storm crossing in front of Triangle Motor Sports (3020 Hillsborough St), as well as two duct bank crossings with one on the west side of Friendly Drive and the other on the east side of Concord St.
While the street is closed, the contractor will also refresh the pavement markings, including reapplying blackout paint to old pavement markings.

Through traffic along Hillsborough Street will be detoured. Westbound through traffic will be detoured to Brooks Avenue to Wade Avenue to Faircloth Street, to Hillsborough Street, and eastbound traffic will be detoured to Faircloth Street to Wade Avenue to Brooks Avenue to Hillsborough Street.

Despite the construction, businesses along the Hillsborough Street corridor remain open. Patrons can still visit their favorite restaurant, shop or other business as access to these businesses is being maintained.
