Manning Drive will be closed to through traffic the weekends of Nov. 9-12 for the removal of the pedestrian bridge connecting the Cardinal Parking Deck, Tarrson Hall and West Drive. During the weekend Nov. 9, Manning Drive will be closed between South Columbia Street and East Drive from 8 p.m. Friday through 6 a.m. Monday. Traffic will be detoured along Mason Farm Road and East Drive. Pedestrians should remain alert to traffic changes and follow designated pedestrian detours.
The Dogwood Parking Deck will remain open and accessible for patient and visitor parking. While Manning Drive is closed, staff may access the Cardinal Parking Deck from Mason Farm Road; vehicles will enter the deck at the southern end of West Drive, going the wrong way on what is normally a one-way street. An interactive map of the area affected by the closure may be found here.
Chapel Hill Transit stops on Manning Drive at UNC Hospitals will not be serviced while Manning Drive is closed. Visit Chapel Hill Transit for information on alternative stops and route detour maps.
