A 21,000-square-foot Target store is coming to Chapel Hill, but not before construction near its proposed location forces a lane of West Franklin Street to close for two weeks.

The closure will affect motorists traveling east on that road between Church and Columbia streets from now until May 26 during the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM.

An opening date of July 15 has been set for the store, but the new apartment complex situated above it may be housing prospective leaseholders as early as July 1.

The store and the complex are part of a multimillion-dollar development known as Carolina Square, which will feature over 200,000 square feet of retail space.
