This week, Duke’s Facilities Management Department closed Chapel Drive from its roundabout to the Chapel as part of a project to repair pavement on the road.
During construction, only emergency vehicles and construction traffic will be allowed entry along this stretch of Chapel Drive. Barring weather delays, work to add new asphalt, granite curb and concrete sidewalks is expected to complete on Aug. 14.
During work hours, safety cones and crews will be in place to direct traffic for motorist and pedestrian safety. For impact to Duke transit routes, see this story on summer bus schedules.
