A new four-lane road in Burlington is set to open in early September, according to the Burlington Times News.
Construction to widen the 2.6-mile stretch on Mebane Street between Chapel Hill and Huffman Mill roads began in May 2009.
The two-lane road is now a four-lane and sidewalks and a median has also been added. The project costs $18.6 million.
About $13 million had been paid to Yates Construction Company Inc. and subcontractors as of July 31, the paper reported.
Pavement striping and directional signs will be added through the end of this month, according to the paper. The road's final paving began last week.
