The Carrboro Board of Aldermen met Tuesday night to discuss downtown traffic circulation, specifically intersections with high traffic volume.
Jeff Brubaker, Carrboro’s transportation planner, presented information on traffic circulation and changes that could occur after approved developments are built in 2014. Changes to traffic would include the flow of vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians.
Analyses for several intersections in downtown Carrboro were presented in the report, with a focus on intersections with the most pressing traffic issues.
It was suggested that Carrboro and Chapel Hill work together to discuss the Main Street, Franklin Street, Merritt Mill Road and Brewer Lane intersections, rather than having the N.C. Department of Transportation do it alone.
Mayor Mark Chilton asked the staff to establish communication with Chapel Hill to map out what may happen with the intersection, taking into consideration the driveway of a new parking deck.
