Pittsboro Street In Chapel Hill Closed For Repairs

Posted Updated

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — There's a traffic tie-up for people heading to Chapel Hill. Pittsboro Street is closed near the Carolina Inn for emergency utility repairs.

On Wednesday afternoon, a crew noticed some damage to a tunnel that runs underneath the road. Vibration from traffic could make it worse.

Crews hope to have one lane re-opened in the coming days. However, repairs won't be finished for another 6-to-8 weeks.

Because of the closure, Chapel Hill Transit routes are affected. More information on the route changes is available
