Cars drive by the entrance to North Chapel Hill Baptist Church, on Monday, Jan. 28, 2019, in Chapel Hill, NC. The church and it's adjacent graveyard, located at the intersection of Interstate 40 and Eubanks Road, will be effected if the North Carolina Department of Transportation keeps it's originally proposed Interstate 40 widening plan.
