Contractors brought heavy equipment in last week and are moving full steam ahead working on underground infrastructure along the corridor as well as completing the extensive tree protection installation along the south side of the corridor.
Crews installed a new sanitary sewer manhole at the intersection of Dixie Trail and Hillsborough Street, and this week installation of the new sewer line continues towards Bagwell Avenue. Contractors need to complete this part of the work during the nighttime hours for safety reasons.
Contractors installed two precast electrical vaults at the private street across from Bagwell Avenue and adjacent to Zaxby’s. With the electrical vaults in place, this week crews will work on the duct bank running towards Dan Allen Drive.
We have started posting construction pictures on our Hillsborough Street Facebook page so that you can follow the progress of the project through photos.
Lastly, remember that Hillsborough Street is under construction, traffic shifts are in place, and there will be times that flaggers will be directing traffic. For your safety and the safety of work crews, please drive slowly and pay close attention throughout the work zone.
