.American Tobacco Trail (ATT) Between Juliette Drive and Cook Road Temporarily Closed for Pipe Replacement
A section of the American Tobacco Trail (ATT) between Juliette Drive and Cook Road will be closed for renovations until mid March (depending on the weather). The Public Works Department will replace a storm drainage pipe, dating from the time of the original railroad bed that has become compromised over the years. The repair is in an area that makes it impossible to provide a safe pedestrian detour. For information, call (919) 560-4355 or email Rosetta Radtke.
