Construction on the N. Greensboro Street-Estes Drive roundabout will move to the east side of the roadway on Monday, Dec. 7.
Traffic will experience a lane shift when the westside lane reopens, and the eastside lane closes. Flaggers will continue to be present to assist traffic move safely through the intersection. During these intermittent lane closures, traffic delays have been minimal with traffic moving fairly well through the area.
Following the traffic shift, crews will proceed to complete the second half of the roundabout circle. They will install storm drainage pipes, extend the culvert, and complete grading and paving. In the project’s first phase, crews completed this same work on the opposite side of the road. Additionally, this initial phase of the project involved installation of new sewer lines and a drainage culvert.
The $3.4 million roundabout project is funded by the NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT) through the State Transportation Improvement Plan. The Town of Carrboro 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.
