Construction and Other Projects

An electrical duct bank installation project along Airport Drive is ongoing through the end of July, 2012. Employees and residents should use caution and follow construction signs and traffic control devices with special care during this period.

Current & Impending Construction:  The project is being conducted in phases and only affects certain areas at any given time. The next phase of the duct bank work will begin on Saturday, February 11 and continue until Saturday, March 3. During this time a portion of the north-south drive running in front of the entrance to the Giles Horney Building will be blocked from the intersection with Airport Drive to a point just south of the Horney Visitor Lot entrance. Those wishing to access that visitor lot will need to do so from the north. To view a map, please visit this link: . NOTE: The next duct bank phase, scheduled for Friday, February 17 through Friday, February 24, will require the additional full closure of Airport Drive at the eastern entrance to the AOB Lot. Chapel Hill Transit’s “NS” and “HU” buses will be re-routed via the MLK Blvd. / Estes Dr. intersection. As this phase approaches, please check Chapel Hill Transit’s website at for more information. As this duct bank project progresses, it impacts different roadways and driveways in turn, and occasionally requires lane closures and road detours. Individual notices and traffic control plans are sent out to all parking permit holders in the affected areas before each phase is scheduled to begin. When this duct bank project is completed, it will provide enhanced service to existing facilities as well as the Carolina North development. Call the Department of Public Safety at 962-3951 during normal business hours with other questions and concerns.
