Grading Begins Along Eno Mountain Road
Friday, Oct. 26, 2018
Grading has begun along Eno Mountain Road as part of the West Hillsborough Sidewalk Connections Project.
Water-filled barriers have been installed along a section of the road near the Eno River to maintain a safe work zone during construction. Next week, workers will begin prepping the area for new curbs and gutters.
Flagging crews will be used for lane shifts and closures as needed to provide a safe work zone. Motorists are advised to expect delays, use caution and observe all safety signage in the project area.
Work on an extension of the Riverwalk greenway to Eno Mountain Road is progressing at the same time as work along the road.
South Nash Street
Customers of businesses along South Nash Street are asked to park in the parking lot on the east side of South Nash Street, as there is no longer on-street parking along South Nash Street due to widened sidewalks.
The temporary barrier along the east side of the street will be removed next week.
About the project
The project will increase pedestrian safety and visibility and improve connectivity in West Hillsborough and the commercial area of South Nash Street. The improvements will increase accessibility and be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The town estimates that the project will be completed in December.
The cost of the project is expected to be $1.2 million, with the bulk of funding coming from the federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality program. About $250,000 will come from the town.
