Construction on Fordham Boulevard

On Wednesday, Feb. 17 (weather permitting), the Town of Chapel Hill began a construction project to install a sidewalk on the southern shoulder of Fordham Boulevard between Manning Drive and Old Mason Farm Road.

The project will require one lane of eastbound Fordham Boulevard to be closed at times over the next few months. Additionally, the lane closure will require the outside left-hand turn lane from Manning Drive onto eastbound Fordham to be closed. Motorists can expect periodic delays and traffic back-ups along southeast-bound Manning Drive, especially during afternoon peak drive times. Please use alternate routes when possible. Call the Department of Public Safety at 962-3951 during normal business hours with other questions or concerns.
