Pavement Markings, Signs in Place at South Nash Street Intersection
Friday, Dec. 21, 2018
Pavement markings have been applied and stop signs uncovered for the new three-way stop at the intersection of Eno and South Nash streets.
Pavement markings include crosswalks, “stop ahead” warnings and directional arrows. The new traffic pattern is part of a project to create and improve sidewalk connections in West Hillsborough and the commercial area of South Nash Street.
Other work completed this week included final grading, seeding and mulch.
Next week, contractors only will work Thursday and Friday due to the Christmas holiday. Planned work includes installation of guardrails and a black chain-link fence along Eno Mountain Road, site cleanup and punch-list items. Work is contingent on weather and contractor availability.
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 West Hillsborough Sidewalk Connections Project will create and improve sidewalk connections in West Hillsborough and the commercial area of South Nash Street. It 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 this month.
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.
