Lane Closed: Willow Drive near Connor Drive

Post Date:08/18/2017 11:22 AM

A contractor for the Town of Chapel Hill on Saturday, Aug. 19 will begin installing a sidewalk along the northwest side of Willow Drive (near University Place) from the Bank of American entrance to Connor Drive. This construction will complete the connection of sidewalk in the area, removing the need to cross Willow Drive. This project is being funded by voter-approved bond money.

Willow Drive will be reduced to a travel lane in either direction without a center turn lane. The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of September, weather permitting.

The project will begin on Saturday, Aug. 19 with the removal of seven trees along the project site. Those trees are scheduled to be replaced this fall.
