The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will conduct an emergency drill on Monday, August 11 that will affect traffic on Manning Drive between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Actors will portray campus community members and victims in order to simulate a response to an actual emergency on campus.

Emergency personnel and vehicles will be visible along Manning Drive, and uniformed responders will react as they would in an actual emergency.

A portion of Manning Drive will be closed for the duration of the drill, and drivers are encouraged to utilize the posted detour route along Bowles Drive.

The FCX, HU, S and U bus routes will all use the Bowles Drive detour.

The bus stops on Manning Drive at Ehringhaus Dorm and Hinton James Dorm will be closed during the drill.

Riders can board detoured buses at the stop on Manning Drive at the Public Safety building.

In a press release, Chapel Hill Transit announced that efforts will be made to maintain the normal schedule, but customers are encouraged to allow for extra travel time and delays.
