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.
Eastwood Lake Subwatershed Residents: Take This Survey!
Do you live, visit or work in the pink areas of this Chapel Hill map? If so, your valuable input on water quality, drainage or flooding issues in your neighborhoods is requested by Sept. 20.
As part of the Stormwater Management Master Plan, the Town of Chapel Hill Stormwater Management Division and project consultants W.K. Dickson request those who live, visit or work in the Eastwood Lake Subwatershed - including Shadowood Apartments, Timber Hollow Apartments; and Forest Creek, Coker Woods, Coker Woods West, Coker Hills and Eastwood Road subdivisions - to take a survey about flooding or drainage problems that may exist in their neighborhoods. This input will be used in the final report and recommendations for watershed improvements in the Booker Creek Watershed. For more information on the subwatershed studies within the Booker Creek watershed, visit www.bookercreekplan.org
