South Road at Student Union

A utility improvement project will require the closure of a segment of South Road beginning May 15, 2017, through Aug. 11, 2017. During this period, South Road will be closed to through traffic between UNC Student Stores and Raleigh Street. Please drive slowly and with caution, follow detour signs, and stay alert to temporary bus stop locations throughout the project. Pedestrians should remain alert to traffic changes and follow signage along South Road designating pedestrian reroutes.

The Student Stores and Fetzer Gym bus stops on South Road will be temporarily relocated during the project. Chapel Hill Transit and GoTriangle will make every attempt to maintain schedules, but riders should plan for delays due to rerouting.

Chapel Hill Transit will implement detours on the A, CCX, DX, FCX, FG, G, S, U and V routes. Visit Chapel Hill Transit for information on alternative stops and route detour maps.

GoTriangle routes 800, 800S, 805 and CRX will also be rerouted; please refer to GoTriangle for more information.

The Point-to-Point Express will follow the Summer Detour Schedule effective May 15.

For questions regarding the nature and status of this project, please contact Keith Snead, Construction Manager, at

For questions and concerns regarding transportation and parking, please contact UNC Transportation & Parking during regular business hours at 919-962-3951.


The section of South Road between UNC Student Stores and Raleigh Street will open for through traffic again on August 11, 2017.
Due to the heavy delays at Ridge Road and Stadium Drive when trying to turn left, a new three way stop will be temporarily added to the Stadium Drive and Ridge Road intersection.
