Portion of American Tobacco Trail in Durham Set to Close Beginning in June

Construction of the final phase of the American Tobacco Trail in Durham is set to begin in June, meaning that some residents will need to find an alternate route over the coming months. Work will be focused on the area between Highway 54 and the Chatham County line and will include the construction of the new pedestrian bridge over I-40. Design Engineering Supervisor Jeff Lecky explains how the project will affect travel on the trail and the surrounding area in this episode of “City Hall This Week.”
