Chapel Hill Transit Detours Service on Route D, Route CL in the morning

Post Date:01/31/2020 4:00 PM


Construction that has impacted Chapel Hill Transit stops on Dobbins Drive between Summerfield Crossing and Erwin roads is completed. Bus service will resume to the two stops (Stop #3118: Dobbins Drive at Summerfield Crossing and Stop #3699: Dobbins Drive at Erwin Road) starting Monday, Feb. 3, 2020.


Chapel Hill Transit will detour the CL and D routes starting Monday, Feb. 3, 2020 to avoid a road closure on Dobbins Drive between Foxcroft Drive and Summerfield Crossing Road. This detour is due to a construction project on Dobbins Drive. This detour will last until we receive authorization to continue service from Orange Water and Sewer Authority (OWASA).

The morning CL Route will turn left onto Dobbins Drive, right onto Erwin Road and right onto Franklin Street to avoid the closed section of Dobbins Drive. Riders on this route should use the stop at Summerfield Crossing Road at Beaver Dam Court or E. Franklin Street at Booker Creek Greenway to avoid the stop closures on Dobbins Drive.

The D Route will continue on Dobbins across Erwin Road, turn right onto Summerfield Crossing Road, right onto Old Oxford Road, right on Erwin Road and right onto Franklin Street to return to the route.
