9.1.17 Campus Update

Good afternoon.  We have received the following from the City of Asheville:

The City of Asheville's contractor will be resurfacing WT Weaver starting Wednesday Sept 6. This milling, patching, and paving project will be done on WT Weaver Blvd between Broadway St. and Barnard Ave.

This work is estimated to take two weeks but could take more time if any delays occur (weather etc.)

Due to the layout of the street we do expect some delays in both vehicle and pedestrian traffic. The plan is to only close one lane at a time and to alternate the traffic between the opposing lane. With school started and this being a busy through traffic street, traffic will be delayed at times.

With the medians dividing the lanes traffic control will be very difficult to keep traffic running smoothly. So please, if you travel on WT Weaver during this time expect delays. The best alternative would be to find alternate routes during this time.

If you have questions regarding construction, please email campusconstruction@unca.edu or contact Campus Operations at 828.251.6564.  For updates and more details, visit https://facilities.unca.edu/construction.
