Summer in Pittsboro means ice cream at S&T’s Soda Shoppe, lazy days at Jordan Lake and enjoying a cold drink in Penguin Place. While the season kicks-off family vacations and summer camps, there is still work being done by Chatham Park to meet important milestones. You can expect to see the following road updates to keep you and your family moving smoothly and safely to that next summer adventure.
Northwood High School Road Updates
One of the many development initiatives this summer is easing transportation issues around the high school. To prepare for the 2019/2020 school year, improvements have begun to help with staff and student parking, traffic and safety.
- Charger Boulevard, the new road for Northwood High School, will be complete and open beginning August 2019. This will give the school two access points, which will allow the school to separate bus traffic from student drivers and parent drop-off and pick-up.
- There will be a new traffic light for Charger Blvd., which will be installed and operating by August 2019.
- Northwood School Road is beginning improvements for access and is scheduled to be completed in August 2020.
New Traffic Signals in Pittsboro
As part of the 15-501 improvements, Chatham Park has given the green light on two new traffic lights. The new light at the Highway 64 East bound exit ramp is installed and working. There will also be a new light installed at the Highway 64 West bound exit ramp, timeframe is currently pending on this project.
These improvements join the growing list of developments here at Chatham Park, including our previously mentioned Tinker Farm solar park and the Water Reclamation Plant. From our family to yours, we hope everyone has a fun and safe summer in beautiful Pittsboro, North Carolina.
