To protect pedestrians and cyclists during roundabout construction, the Frances Shetley Bikeway that leads from the Greensboro Street/Estes Drive intersection to Shelton Street will be closing from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays June 22-29.
The sewer line relocation associated with the roundabout project has reached the point where it will cross the bikeway. Crews will be moving large equipment into the area to remove rock. The temporary bikeway closing is necessary to protect public safety and facilitate movement of construction equipment. Signs indicating a detour to Oak Avenue will be in place. The bikeway will be open outside of construction hours.
The $3.4 million roundabout project is funded by the NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT) through the State Transportation Improvement Plan (STIP). The Town submitted the project for state funding in 2013, and it was approved for funding in the 2016-2025 STIP. This improvement is expected to reduce traffic delay and increase safety by providing smoother traffic flow. An added public benefit, aging OWASA stormwater and sanitary sewer lines are being replaced during the roadway work. Construction began in August 2019 is expected to be completed by September 2021.
- Use designated areas and crosswalks. Do not enter the construction area.
- Look for construction vehicles and be prepared to stop.
- The construction area is off limits to unauthorized personnel.
Thanks to everyone for their patience as we look forward to the completion of this public improvement.
