Construction of the University’s Cogeneration Facility Steam Tunnel Replacement project requires that Pittsboro Street, between Cameron Avenue and McCauley Street, be reduced to one travel lane for a period of up to 18 months.

Bicycle lane, one travel lane and sidewalk on one side on Pittsboro Street will always be open during this phase of the project.
