Check out our 203 Project YouTube Playlist for monthly construction updates.

The 203 Project is located at 203 S. Greensboro Street, an existing Carrboro municipal parking lot near the center of the town. This is a combined effort between the Town of Carrboro and Orange County to create a community  three-story public facility with opportunities for education, art and connection.

 A fairly large concrete pour is anticipated on Monday, Aug. 14, beginning around 9 a.m.  at the construction site of The 203 Project. This will be approximately 10 concrete trucks making coordinated deliveries over about two hours.  

Monday through Wednesday, Aug. 14, will be busy with material deliveries to the site. Temporary delays on Greensboro and Roberson streets can be expected while spotters get trucks backed into the site.

There is currently a lot of activity on site.  The parking deck continues to be built with multiple concrete pours taking place over the coming weeks.  Interior construction is underway in the building with metal wall studs being installed for the interior and exterior walls.  Mechanical, electrical and plumbing trades are all mobilized and working on site.  Brick will start to be delivered soon, and masons will begin installing the brick veneer.

AT&T is nearly complete with utility work on Greensboro and Carr streets.  A relocation project on Roberson Street is expecting to get underway later this fall. More details will be provided.

Construction remains on track to be finished next summer.
