[ARCHIVED] Traffic disruptions planned for 203 S. Greensboro Street Project on March 16-17

Commissioners break ground at site of Southern Branch library

Duke Energy will be performing utility work around the construction site on March 16-17, which will have traffic impacts between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.  Roberson Street traffic will be detoured to use the Main Street intersection instead of S. Greensboro Street. Maple Avenue residents will continue to use E. Carr Street and Maple Avenue Extension. Flaggers and temporary signs will be used to direct traffic.  The attached plans show the traffic changes in detail.

On March 14, an early morning concrete pour is scheduled for the first floor slab.  The pour will begin around 3 a.m. with concrete deliveries continuing through-out the morning.

In other updates, the site foundations and footings are nearly complete with more construction trades beginning to mobilize onsite. Watch the latest drone video of construction progress at


The $42 million development will be the future home of the Carrboro Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department and the Orange County Southern Branch Library. The facility will also provide a permanent home for the Orange County Skills Development Center, WCOM Radio and performance/multipurpose uses. The 203 Project will provide opportunities for education, art and community connection.
