Public meeting on widening of Hillsboro Street in Pittsboro set for June 18

Pittsboro, NC – The N.C. Department of Transportation proposes to widen approximately 1.4 miles U.S. 15-501 (Hillsboro Street) roadway widening project in Pittsboro from Launis Street to Powell Place Lane.

The proposed project would widen the existing undivided, two-lane typical section south of U.S. 64 to a three-lane roadway. It would provide one lane in each direction with a continuous center turn lane, curb, gutter, a sidewalk on the west side and a multi-use path on the east side. Intersections with collector roads will also be upgraded. The project is included in the 2018-2027 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) with construction planned for fiscal year 2021.

A public meeting is scheduled for:

Tuesday, June 18, 2019 , 4-7 p.m.
Forest Hall at Chatham Mills
480 Hillsboro Street, Pittsboro

The purpose of this meeting is to inform the public of the project and gather input on the proposed design.
