South side of circle to be closed

Pittsboro, NC - The installation of a temporary roof and related repairs on the Historic Chatham County Courthouse has led the NC Department of Transportation (DOT) to partially close the traffic circle in downtown Pittsboro for two days. Only the south side of the traffic circle in front of the Courthouse Annex will be closed on Sept. 13-14.

"This means that people will be able to get halfway around the circle heading from the east to the west, but not from the west to the east," said David Hughes, director of Chatham County Public Works. Detour routes for eastbound and north-south traffic will be marked by DOT.

"We are relieved that DOT can keep the traffic circle partially open during these two days to minimize the impact on downtown merchants and other businesses," Hughes said.
