New Traffic Pattern at Eno, South Nash Streets
Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018
A new traffic pattern will soon be in effect at the intersection of Eno and South Nash streets.
A three-way stop is being created where the streets intersect and meet with a driveway from the South Nash Street parking lot. Today, workers are installing stop signs at the intersection, which will remain covered for several days. Construction signs and cones will remain in place to remind motorists to be cautious in the meantime.
Workers also are marking South Nash, Eno and Calvin streets with crosswalks, centerlines, edge lines and stop bars. The work is part of a project to create and improve sidewalk connections in West Hillsborough and the commercial area of South Nash Street.
Flagging crews will be used for lane shifts and closures as needed to provide a safe work zone. Citizens are advised to use caution and observe all safety signage in the project area.
Businesses in the area remain open and accessible during construction. Customers 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.
About the project
The project will increase pedestrian safety and visibility and improve connectivity. 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.
