Dobbins Drive Water and Sewer Line Replacement

OWASA’s contractor has completed Phase 1 of the project replacing water and sewer lines on Dobbins Drive, which is necessitating a shift in traffic impacts. The contractor moved on to Phase 2 of the project, from Summerfield Crossing to East Franklin Street at the beginning of February.

The work will start to cross Franklin Square driveways in the coming weeks and OWASA will close the road to thru traffic during this time. OWASA is requesting that all local traffic exit via Erwin Road during this time to help our teams work safely and quickly. Emergency vehicles and local traffic will continue to be flagged through the construction zone. Continuous access will be provided to Franklin Square throughout the construction.

OWASA has coordinated with Chapel Hill Transit and Chapel Hill – Carrboro Schools to prevent any cancelled bus routes. We apologize for any inconvenience the work causes.

Please contact me if you have any questions or immediate concerns.
