Travel Safety Initiatives
We want everyone to travel safely in Chapel Hill. The Police Department and area partners will continue speed enforcement and Watch for Me N.C. initiatives throughout the month of February. These initiatives are an effort to continue to preserve and enhance a safe community in which to travel, whether on two wheels, four wheels, two feet, or other methods.
Watch For Me N.C. is a statewide safety initiative designed to improve relationships on roads between people who drive, people who walk, people who roll and people who bike. People may receive helpful information, warnings, and in some cases, tickets for violations during these initiatives.
The Chapel Hill Police Department is taking additional steps to encourage safety among all travelers of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and throughout the community. You may notice an enhanced police presence along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. The Watch For Me N.C. travel-safety initiative scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 27, is being moved from South Columbia Street to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. You will also notice temporary digital signs along the road to encourage safe-travel behaviors.
Public Information Meetings on Eastwood Lake Subwatershed Study
Two drop-in sessions will be held on Thursday, June 1, 2017 at the Chapel Hill Public Library Meeting Room B to update the public about the Eastwood Lake Subwatershed Study now underway, and to gain valuable input on flooding and drainage problems that exist in the area. Meetings will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Each session will start with a presentation by the Town’s engineering consultant, W.K. Dickson, followed by time for participants to talk with the consultants, review maps, and take the study survey.
