West Main Street Repair Work

Durham, like so many other towns, has a Main Street whose name evolved because, well, it's a main access pathway. Given that status, when there are disruptions thereon, life can get a little more complicated. West Main Street will begin to see major construction starting in February as water lines installed around the turn of the last century are replaced. Construction and installation will continue until September - a project that will run, to a degree, coincidentally with the replacement of the West Main Street bridge that goes over Campus Drive along the same stretch of road.

Not to worry, though.  At least during the water main work, there will be traffic lanes open most of the time; the bridge replacement project will require drivers to make other arrangements to get around Duke's East Campus. Fortunately, there are many options to do so.

The City of Durham has created a web page for the water main replacement project on which there is contact information for those who can share more about the project with those desiring to know.

Like most projects of this nature, they pose, in the grand scheme of things, a minor imposition when taken in consideration of the community's life cycle, both past and future.

More information will be shared here as it comes available about these two repair projects.
