Both streets are currently operating in their new two-way traffic pattern. There is storm drain work scheduled for Lenoir Street in the coming weeks before the project is completed later this summer.
The project will convert the remaining one-way sections of Lenoir and South Streets to two-way operation with one lane per direction and left turn lanes where needed.
Street Improvements will include:
- Removal of unnecessary traffic signals
- Improved bicycle and pedestrian amenities
- Upgraded underground infrastructure
- Small sections of landscaped median will be provided on South Street between West Street and Dawson Street.

The purpose of the project is to improve navigation and accessibility of this section of downtown, improve bicycle and pedestrian amenities, and reduce unnecessary delay for roadway users by removing unneeded traffic signals.
Portions of Lenoir Street and South Street between South Saunders Street and East Street were previously converted to two-way operation. The remaining sections are primarily composed of one-way two-lane sections. The project will convert these remaining sections to two-way operation with one lane per direction and left turn lanes where needed.
