Jonathan Cartu Reviews: Public Invited to Join Virtual Fordham Sidepath Information

Public Invited to Join Virtual Fordham Sidepath Information

The public is invited to join a virtual information meeting this week regarding recent survey results and the next steps for the development of the Fordham Boulevard side path in Chapel Hill.

The Town of Chapel Hill is currently in the design phase for a multi-use side path along Fordham between Cleland Drive and Willow Drive. A recent survey outlined two options for traffic calming measures for Hickory Drive as well as two intersections along Fordham. The existing side path between Cleland and Ridgefield Road will also be upgraded and a new section will be constructed between Ridgefield and Willow.

The Chapel Hill Town Council approved the initial design for a new multi-use path along Fordham in March.

“We want to get people out of cars and moving around,” Chapel Hill Mayor Pam Hemminger told 97.9 The Hill at the time. “People are already using that area unsafely, so this will be a big boon. Plus, we have federal money that’s helping move it along.”

The meeting will take place on Thursday, October 22 from 7-8:30 p.m.
