Intersection of University Drive and Hillsboro Boulevard
The developer for the charter school being constructed on the northwest corner of the intersection of University Drive and Hillsboro Boulevard is conducting work on the roadway, turning lanes, and sidewalks in that area. As the work continues, there will be periodic single lane closure required from time-to-time. These disruptions are expected to be minimal and utilize flag persons when necessary. The developer expects the charter school project to be complete by Fall 2020. As always, proceed with caution through the area and obey flag person commands.
Traffic Signal: Nob Hill Road-Hillsboro Boulevard
The traffic signal project at the intersection of Nob Hill Road and Hillsboro Boulevard is progressing ahead of schedule. The light fixtures have been installed, electric has been run to them, and additional work is needed before the signal can be operational. It is expected the lights will begin as flashing in all directions in July 2020 before being fully operational by the end of Summer 2020. The light fixtures are positioned downward so motorists understand they are not functional. Until the lights are operating, the intersection remains a four-way stop requiring traffic in all directions to come to a complete stop before safely proceeding though the intersection.
