Churton Street Project Receives Final Inspection
Representatives of the N.C. Department of Transportation, the town and its engineering and contracting firms met recently for a final state inspection of Churton Street access improvements.

The town’s work related to Churton Street access improvements recently received its final inspection by the N.C. Department of Transportation.

As part of N.C. 86, the Churton Street right of way is controlled by the state, and NCDOT has to inspect and approve changes made by the town. Following the inspection, six small items were added to the punch-list work already underway. The most significant of these items was replacing a panel of concrete in the Orange Rural Fire Department’s driveway apron that cracked under the weight of fire trucks. This work will be done in January to avoid interfering with holiday shopping and dining.

Remaining work

NCDOT will pave Churton Street in 2018, likely during the summer. After this, the town will install stamped, brick-pattern crosswalks at the intersections of Churton Street with Margaret Lane and Nash and Kollock, King and Tryon streets.

The Churton Street Access Improvements Project is a partnership between the town and NCDOT, with much of the funding coming from state and federal sources.
