Dear Resident or Business Owner:
The City of Zebulon is excited to announce the start date of a much-anticipated project that will demolish and replace the existing sidewalks on Highway 18/Barnesville Street. The project is scheduled to begin on Monday April 3, 2023 and should greatly improve the usability of the Barnesville Street Sidewalks.
The project will include portions of the sidewalk on both, the North and South sides of the street. Construction on the north side of the street will begin at the old train depot (Depot Street) and continue east until the end of the current sidewalk. The south side will begin at the square and continue until the end of the existing sidewalk as well. New sidewalks will also be poured on Wrightsburg Way to safely connect pedestrians to Highway 18/Barnesville St.
The current sidewalks will be replaced with new 5-foot-wide walkways. The replacement of the existing sidewalks will create a more ADA accessible community for the citizens of Zebulon that reside in that neighborhood. In addition to the sidewalks, driveways adjacent to Barnesville Street will also be reconstructed. Residents or business owners may have to park on the street while their driveway cures.
Hasbun Construction will be working efficiently to minimize any prolonged delays; however, some intermittent traffic setbacks should be expected. This project is estimated to last three months. As construction in this area continues, the City of Zebulon urges residents to drive with caution and be courteous to the crews working on the project. Work will begin on the south side of Barnesville Street and then move to the north side.
Please contact Zebulon City Hall at 770-567-8748 with any further questions or concerns.
