Hillsborough to begin resurfacing roads

Posted October 26, 2012

— Failing asphalt on streets in Hillsborough will begin to be removed and replaced starting Nov. 1.

The resurfacing project is expected to be completed by Dec. 16, a spokesman for the town of Hillsborough said.

Businesses and residences will be notified by flier when work will take place on their streets. After fliers are distributed to the affected streets, cars should not be parked on the road. 

The following streets will be resurfaced: Barracks Road, West Margaret Lane, Meadowland Drive, West Tryon Street, West King Street, East Orange Street and South Wake Street.

    I wish they would open up a pass through from Hwy. 70 to the other side of town. It would be SO nice when you come off the interstate to avoid having to drive through town. I think it is always the "Historical" people that won't let this kind of change happen. We don't live in the Daniel Boone era any longer, we have busy lives and don't need to get stuck in traffic just to get through town! I say build some new roads!!

    "I have always wondered why the interstates when passing through orange county reduce to two lanes and as they leave orange county suddenly open back up to more. Where do they think all the cars go if they are not on the interstate, perhaps cutting through Hillsborough and damaging the roads?" -- bellis200709

    Believe me, no one "cuts through Hillsborough" to bypass the Interstates. You must not be very familiar with the town to even think that's a possibility. Besides, all the streets listed are side streets into residential areas. The only thing you get to my cutting down Margaret Lane is the other end of Margaret Lane!
