Nighttime Hillsborough Street Detours

Posted Friday, Oct. 13

Starting Monday night, Oct. 16 there will be a series of nighttime through traffic detours on Hillsborough Street to accommodate work related to the Hillsborough Street Phase II Project.

Weather permitting, Hillsborough Street will be closed to through traffic Monday night, October 16, through Thursday night, Oct. 19, and again Monday night, Oct. 23, through Thursday night, Oct. 26, and finally on Monday night, Oct. 30. The nighttime closures are required while crews finish the last of the sanitary sewer and water service connections, complete some storm drain crossings, and patch the roadway. Below is a tentative schedule of work being performed each night.

The detour will be put in place each night at 7 p.m. and will reopen to through traffic each morning at 6 a.m.

All businesses are open along the construction corridor, and there will be access for patrons during this time.
