UPCOMING EVENTS

ONGOING CONSTRUCTION

Phase II Street Revitalization

After technical problems over the weekend, crews are putting down pavement markings on side streets this week, which will result in temporary closures during the days this week. 

On Wednesday night, the crews are scheduled to complete the pavement markings on Hillsborough Street, which will necessitate a night road closure. Westbound through traffic will be detoured to Gardner Street, to Wade Avenue to Faircloth Street and eastbound through traffic will be detoured to Faircloth Street to Wade Avenue to Gardner Street. Businesses along the corridor remain open, and access is available by way of side streets along the corridor. 

While work is ongoing along the corridor, large trucks are not able to navigate through the corridor without damaging the newly installed concrete roundabouts and brick sidewalks. 

City Council approved this streetscape enhancement on Tuesday, May 3, 2016. Updates to the street will improve vehicular and pedestrian safety, add bike lanes and improved transit shelters.

Follow progress on the Hillsborough Street Revitalization Facebook page and visit the project website for regular updates. Make sure to download the Hillsborough Street app for up-to-the-minute construction updates. Get traffic frequent updates when you subscribe to the Phase II enewsletter.

Water Transmission Line Replacement
Through regular testing and maintenance, the City of Raleigh identified a very high chance of failure for the waterline that runs from the water tower on Chamberlain Street to the intersection of Hillsborough Street and W. Morgan Street. 

Construction of the 36-inch waterline continues on Hillsborough Street (east of Forest and headed to W. Park). The end of W. Park Drive at Hillsborough Street is closed for the next two weeks to allow tie-ins to the existing water lines.

Pavement and concrete restoration work continues as well. On Saturday morning, June 30, the intersection of Clark Avenue and Oberlin Road will be closed from approximately 7 am to noon to allow final pavement operations. The intersection will be reopened when this work is complete and then Oberlin Road will be paved from Clark to Park Drive the same day with flagging operations allowing through traffic. See attached detour map titled Oberlin & Clark Intersection Closure.

The most up-to-date detour map is available here.

Project updates can be found on the City's project website or by contacting Janeen Goodwin, project manager at janeen.goodwin@raleighnc.gov. Construction schedules are subject to change due to unforeseen conditions such as weather, construction delays or conflicts.
