On Tuesday evening, August 21, 2018, the Town of Carrboro held a ribbon-cutting event celebrating the official opening of the Homestead Road-Chapel Hill High School Multi-use Path. The 0.4-mile path connects the high school and adjacent school campuses with the residential developments along the north side of Homestead Road via a pedestrian bridge crossing Bolin Creek and an underpass extending under Homestead Road. A future spur linking the multi-use path to Claremont South is also in the works and once completed will provide a direct connection to residents living along the south side of Homestead Road in Claremont South and neighboring residential subdivisions, such as Wexford, Williams Woods, Cates Farm, and heading toward downtown Carrboro.

While enjoying this new bike-ped infrastructure please remember that the construction crews are still at work finishing the remaining punch-list items, particularly at the high school end of the path near the tennis courts. Please also keep in mind that Bolin Creek rises during rain events, and may flood the portion of the multi-use path that extends under the Homestead Road bridge. Parents and teachers are requested to please remind students to use additional care during rainy weather, and use alternative routes to and from school when any portion of the multi-use path appears to be underwater.
