Road closures and construction in the Town of Harrisburg will affect traffic and bus routes this school year. The road closures and detours may result in longer ride times for students on school buses and changes to bus stop locations. Safety is our top priority, so we appreciate parents’ patience if the construction causes bus delays or bus stop changes.
The road and rail construction project currently under way is part of the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s (NCDOT) Piedmont Improvement Program (PIP), an NCDOT initiative to modernize highway and rail infrastructure and increase safety along the high-growth Raleigh to Charlotte corridor.
Municipalities affected by the PIP, like the Town of Harrisburg, work with NCDOT to minimize the impact the construction has on its residents and businesses.
