Traffic Advisory: Duke University Road Construction

Work will take place Friday, Saturday and Monday

Beginning Friday, motorists traveling around the southern portion of West Campus may experience delays during construction on Duke University Road between Wannamaker Drive and Route 751.

The City of Durham will begin a repaving process around 8 a.m. Friday, milling the quarter-mile stretch of Duke University Road from Wannamaker to 751. Work may last until 5 p.m. Crews will have workers posted on both sides of the road to assist with traffic, which will use one lane to pass through the construction area.

Work will continue on Saturday during the same timeframe and will also have crews available to direct traffic. Roadwork will take place during Duke's annual Pumpkin Fun Run event, so participants should allow extra travel time to get to the race at the Al Buehler Cross Country Trail. Registration for the event begins at 9 a.m. with the race at 10 a.m.

Crews are expected to complete roadwork Monday by adding lane stripes to the road during 8 a.m. to about 5 p.m.

All roadwork is weather-dependent, and if Durham receives rain during planned construction times, work may be postponed.
