Construction to begin on Cameron Street sidewalk project

ORANGE COUNTY, NC (May 23, 2017)—Orange County is adding a sidewalk to the 100 block of South Cameron Street. The project began with the removal of two trees on May 19. Construction on the sidewalk will begin May 30, the day after Memorial Day.

The month-long project is expected to be finished by June 30, weather permitting. During construction, some of the parking spaces along Cameron Street may be inaccessible.

Before beginning the project, Orange County secured approvals from the Historic District Commission, the Town of Hillsborough Tree Board and the Hillsborough Board of Commissioners. The county will maintain the sidewalk for the first year before turning it over to the Town of Hillsborough on July 1, 2018.
