Plans to replace water pipes on part of Hillsborough Street in Chapel Hill from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to a point near North Street

May 2017 --preliminary information; more to be added.

We expect to start work by early July 2017 on a project to replace water mains along part of Hillsborough Street as shown below. The project may be complete in the winter of 2017-18.

The purpose of the work is to maintain reliable water service including water for fire protection when needed.


The work will normally involve closing one lane of Hillsborough Street near our work area.
