Currently, contractors are setting traffic control devices and shifting the traffic along the street to new lanes on the north side of the street as they prepare to begin the work to renew Hillsborough Street. This work requires that segments of the street be closed to both pedestrians and vehicular traffic at times.
Due to the complexities of the Hillsborough Street Project and the high traffic volume along the corridor during the daylight hours, contractors will have to perform certain aspects of the project during nighttime hours. Night work will allow construction along the corridor to proceed faster and more safely for the public and workers and will help us reach the project completion sooner.
We are currently working with contractors to minimize the disturbances and inconveniences to residents along the corridor during construction. However, we ask for your patience and understanding during this time, as road construction can be noisy. We ask that pedestrians take the detour routes and avoid crossing through the construction zones and that drivers use caution as new traffic patterns will be implemented.
