Help Needed for possible Merritt mill bike lanes

The Town of Chapel Hill and the Town of Carrboro are exploring adding bike lanes to a portion of Merritt Mill Road, and are looking for volunteer help to collect traffic counts.

The counts would be collected on Thursday, September 15th at eight intersections.

Volunteers and staff will count turning vehicles, bikes, and pedestrians during the morning (8-9 AM), noon (12-1 PM), and evening (4:30-5:30 PM) peak hours.

This data will be used to create a traffic model and determine the impact on local residents of removing the center turn lane.

If you’re interested in helping, please fill out this SignUpGenius
