Reminder: Construction Work at Intersection and Lane Closure
Anyone walking or driving through the intersection of 45th and Emile streets will see some changes for the next several weeks. As part of the expansion of the Central Plant hot water system, work crews will be installing new piping along and under the streets. The area impacted is just south of Durham Research Tower II. Beginning March 30, the sidewalk on the south side of Emile Street between 45th and Saddle Creek Road will be closed. That phase is anticipated to be run through April 10.
On April 13, the sidewalk on the north side of Emile, closest to the research tower, will be closed for similar work. This phase will also require contractors to close the north lane of vehicle traffic along Emile Street, west of 45th Street. This phase is expected to be complete by May 1.
Signs and detours will be clearly marked. For the safety of the work crews and themselves, staff, students and visitors are asked to follow all the posted detour signs and not walk in the street.
