The NC Department of Transportation has completed intersection improvements on Franklin Street between Merritt Mill Road and Graham Street. Chris Smitherman, an NCDOT Division 7 project team leader, explains more in this video:

The $350,000 NCDOT project includes the following improvements, planned and coordinated by the towns of Chapel Hill and Carrboro:

  • Traffic signal upgrade
  • Stamped crosswalks
  • Safer, more defined, and more efficient bicycle and pedestrian accommodations
  • New sidewalk and curb ramps to the areas in front of the car wash, the garage, and also to the SE quadrant of the intersection.
  • Converting the back-to-back left turn lane between Merritt Mill Road and Graham Street into a median
