Posted August 28, 2003 3:24 a.m. EDT
RALEIGH, N.C. — Due to the N.C. 54 ramp closures, the North Carolina Department of Transportation and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill are working together to ensure that people attending football games in Chapel Hill the next two Saturdays arrive and leave as safely and efficiently as possible.
Motorists are encouraged to choose one of the following alternate routes:
Eastbound motorists driving to Chapel Hill:
Eastbound motorists leaving Chapel Hill via N.C. 54 and I-40 East:
Motorists traveling west on I-40 to Chapel Hill still will be able to exit onto and off of N.C. 54.
Law enforcement will be positioned at all major interchanges to help the traffic flow.
Motorists also are encouraged to use the available Park and Ride Lots at the Friday Center and at University Mall.
NCDOT reminds motorists that there will be additional traffic in the Triangle on Saturday due to other sporting events in the area.
This construction is part of the project to widen I-40. For real-time travel information, visit the DOT
