Chapel Hill Responds to National Championship Celebration

Post Date:04/04/2017 2:18 AM

The Town of Chapel Hill responded Monday night into Tuesday morning to the community’s celebration of UNC-Chapel Hill’s victory in the Men’s NCAA National Championship.

An estimated crowd of 55,000 people rushed Franklin Street immediately following the victory, at which time the streets were closed to vehicular traffic. The streets were cleaned and reopened to regular traffic at 2:09 a.m. Tuesday.

Seven injuries were reported during the event, four of whom suffered burns; Town officials extinguished and cleaned multiple bonfires on Franklin Street.

Congratulations to the Tar Heels on their sixth Men’s NCAA National Championship. We wish you safe travels on your way home to Chapel Hill!

The Town would like to thank all its many Town employees and area partners for a collaborative effort to watch out for the safety of the people of Chapel Hill.
