Road closure for UNC construction project
set to begin on Ransom, McCauley Tuesday (Jan. 9)

A UNC construction project west of campus will cause the temporary closing of Ransom Street to through traffic beginning Tuesday morning (Jan. 9).

The street will be closed for one block, from McCauley Street to Cameron Avenue, for one day. Construction at the intersection of Ransom and McCauley streets is expected to last a week to 10 days.

Workers will maintain local resident and emergency vehicle access and will keep all driveways open and unobstructed. Sidewalk access is expected to be maintained on at least one side of the street throughout. One lane of McCauley will be closed at the Ransom intersection, and flagmen will direct two-way traffic there.
