Route Changes
Chapel Hill Transit (CHT) will be implementing detours and will not serve bus stops along Raleigh Street or South Road at Fetzer Gym, Woollen Gym, or the School of Government (at Country Club Road). Routes will resume normal routing on Jan. 11.  For further details on transit changes, visit the CHT link here.

Two-way access will be allowed from McCauley and South Columbia Streets only as far east as Bell Tower Drive. Pedestrian traffic will be detoured and routed to avoid the construction areas.
During this same time period, there will be no access to Raleigh Street via South Road. Raleigh Street will be blocked at its intersection with South Road.
