News Around Town: Carrboro Parking Deck Construction Begins; CHPL-UMall To Close

CHAPEL HILL-CARRBORO – The majority of the construction of a parking deck at 300 E. Main Street in Carrboro will begin on Tuesday after three weeks of delays.

One delivery of pre-cast concrete will occur between 1:00 and 2:00 p.m. Monday, and all-day deliveries will begin on Tuesday. The deliveries will take place once every 45 minutes or so and stop traffic on E. Main Street to allow one truck to exit the transfer space and another to back into place.

Connecting streets could also see delays including West Rosemary, South Merritt Mill, Greensboro, Franklin, Jones Ferry, and others. Emergency crews have been instructed to choose different routes during the construction times as well.

The Town of Carrboro has announced that the permits do not allow work to be done before 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. so it will not have an effect on the busiest travel times.

The construction is scheduled to last approximately one month.

The Chapel Hill Public Library will close its doors at its temporary location at University Mall this week in preparation of opening its new location.

On Saturday, the UMall location will close and the materials will begin to be transferred to the vastly renovated building at 100 Library Drive just off Estes Drive. The Library will be closed for approximately three weeks. Town Manager Roger Stancil announced last week that it’s expected to open is doors officially on April 26 if all goes as planned.

Crews have been installing new furniture and library shelves as well as preparing the new building for the computers and other technology.

The Town has selected Hallett Movers to handle the transfer.

Books and library materials will not be able to be returned during the transfer. However, the library will adjust return dates so no fines will accrue during that time.

Parking Deck Construction Likely To Cause Traffic Delays In Carrboro

CARRBORO – Construction of a parking deck at 300 East Main Street in Carrboro will likely cause delays to traffic in the immediate area during business hours beginning Monday.

Once an hour, trucks will deliver premade portions of the parking deck that will be hoisted in place by a crane. The trucks will have to back into a transfer space just off East Main after an empty truck departs. During that time, crews will stop traffic to allow the trucks room to maneuver.

The work will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday for approximately a month.

Connecting streets could also see delays including West Rosemary, South Merritt Mill, Greensboro, Franklin, Jones Ferry, and others. Emergency crews have been instructed to choose different routes during the construction times as well.

Exact times of delivery are unknown so motorists using that route are instructed to allow extra travel time as well as find an alternate route.

***Town officials announced Monday that construction will not begin until Friday, March 1.
