For those who missed it, last month's inaugural Kidical Mass in Carrboro was a huge success. Thanks to all the organizers!

Great News!

Just wanted to comment on what great news this is. Kudos to the Carrboro board for holding out for the right result! How strange that it should be so difficult and controversial to add bike lanes and a place for people to walk without adding new lanes for automobiles. (Note: This substitutes for the attempted post under "Will Chapel Hill / Carrboro ever be bike-friendly?")


NCDOT Yields to Carrboro on Smith Level Rd

The N&O just announced that NCDOT has agreed to build Carrboro's preferred design for Smith Level Rd, but is dropping their previous requirement that Carrboro must pick up the ongoing maintenance tab for the roadway if the town's preferred design is to be accepted.  

Sidewalks for Estes?

A few years ago, the voters of Carrboro approved a couple million dollar bond issue to build sidewalks in various locations around Carrboro. One of the projects on the list was a sidewalk on the south side of Estes Drive Extension from the railroad tracks to North Greensboro Street.  But the sidewalk bond money has not gone as far as people had hoped. Considerably higher engineering, materials, labor, drainage and utility-relocation costs have cropped up and we will not be able to build the entire original list of sidewalks with the bond money. Also, in the intervening years, the Town annexed neighborhoods on the west side of Rogers Road and it became apparent that Rogers Road was a place that needed a sidewalk, but had not been on the list before because it was not within town limits.
