Title: Chatham Co. road work ahead
Post by: natvrabit on August 02, 2017, 04:18:49 PM
Heads up on upcoming paving projects in Chatham Co. 15-501 between C. Hill/PBO is a no win lately for escaping the NC orange barrel state flag :laugh:

Couldn't believe today near Briar Chapel had dude standing in middle of 15-501 highway with nothing but his fist to signal for traffic to stop. NO slow/stop sign. He came close to being road kill. WT? Had an orange hat on, which blended in perfectly with all the orange barrels ??? ::)

"A nine-mile stretch of U.S. 15-501 between Rock Spring Cemetery and Manns Chapel Roads

The work will begin on Aug. 28 and could take one year to complete."


Brilliant - Wait till school starts and tie up 15/501 from McDonald's ( at Lowe's Home Improvement) to McDonald's (at Lowe's Foods)

My first thought~wait till school starts...guess had to wait for all that futzing around going on due to B. Chapel area to be done to redo the road that all destroyed with heavy equipment, funky turn around thingies etc. I'm thinking they mean 1 yr. to complete all projects~not just the 15-501 stretch?

They just paved 64 from Apex to the Chatham County line, the pavement joint bumps while surfacing were car killers, like going up a curb at 60 MPH.
