[ARCHIVED] Tree Removal Scheduled For Liberty & Main Conversion Project

One northbound lane of Old Salem Road will be closed between Academy Street and Brookstown Avenue starting Monday, May 2, to allow a contractor to remove four trees and trim two others in preparation for converting Liberty and Main streets to two-way traffic. 

Work is expected to be complete and the lane reopened Thursday, May 5.

The tree work has been approved by the Historic Resources Commission and is necessary to allow Duke Energy to relocate utility poles for widening and realigning the northbound lanes of Old Salem Road.

Work on the actual conversion of Liberty and Main streets is not expected to start before the spring of 2023.

Work continues on conversion of First and Second streets to two-way traffic. New signal poles are expected to be in place by the end of July, after which new signal lights and wiring will be installed. First and Second streets will be resurfaced as part of the project. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year. 

Voters approved $6.4 million for both projects as part of the 2018 bond referendum.
