NCDOT to close lane on South Road this week for pavement maintenance

Weather permitting, the N.C. Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will temporarily close one lane of South Road on the UNC campus this week to patch asphalt. The eastbound lane of South Road between Raleigh Street and Stadium Drive will be closed from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. each day beginning Wednesday, March 13 through Friday, March 15.

Flaggers will direct traffic in a one-lane, two-way traffic pattern during the closure. The sidewalk will remain open.

NCDOT scheduled the work to occur during UNC’s spring break in an effort to minimize the impact to students. However, motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists should expect delays and are encouraged to plan for additional travel time.
