Cameron Avenue Closed to Through Traffic

Coming to campus soon? If you were planning to cruise by the Old Well on Cameron Avenue, check for the latest street-closing notices first.

Starting Jan. 24, parts of Cameron between Columbia and Raleigh streets are expected to be closed for construction work. It’s part of a utility upgrade to support a new chiller plant and parking deck that will be built behind the Center for Dramatic Art, Paul Green Theater and Cobb dorm off Country Club Road. Chapel Hill Transit is posting detour listings online.

Through traffic is expected to resume on Cameron in May.

The chiller plant will support campuswide energy needs and includes upgrades and additions to existing chilled water distribution and new electrical duct banks connecting with other campus locations. The parking deck will have 466 spaces to serve North Campus.

The work will be done in short sections starting at Raleigh Street near the Arboretum and continuing to Columbia Street near The Carolina Inn.

Cameron will remain open to local traffic and emergency vehicles. As sections of the project are completed, the work will move west down Cameron.
