Downtown portions of Avent Ferry Road and West Ballentine Street are closed for utilities construction related to the public-private development project under way next to Town Hall.
The roadway segments affected are:
- Ballentine Street between Main Street and Avent Ferry Road
- Avent Ferry Road between Elm Street and Ballentine Street
The closing of that segment of Avent Ferry Road is expected to last until late this year. Detour signs are posted.
Businesses and parking lots near Town Hall remain open.
The closings will allow for installation of water, sewer and gas lines along and in the roadway.
Town-funded improvements under way on South Main Street include a parking deck, lot, and on-street parking totaling nearly 400 spaces. This is in conjunction with two private development projects on South Main Street, Town Hall Commons and The Block on Main, that will transform downtown.
