Project Description


This project involves the construction of more than 3000 linear feet of sidewalk along University Drive from Old Chapel Hill Rd to Cornwallis Rd. This project will provide a safer route for pedestrians/bicyclists travelling along University Drive and create an easier pedestrian access to Hope Valley Elementary School by extending sidewalk to the school approach and adding crosswalks at the intersection with Dixon Road. The project also includes installation of curb ramps on both sides of University Drive and crosswalks at intersections, construction/upgrade of stormwater infrastructure, addition of bike lanes on University Drive and construction/replacement of curb and gutter in some areas within the project limits.
