.Pumpkin Trail closed for construction project
Portions of the popular Pumpkin Loop running trail will be closed temporarily for construction on the second phase of a utility duct-bank across Carolina North. These sections of the Pumpkin Loop will remain closed until late fall or early winter, but will be opened for the annual Pumpkin Run in October.
Pumpkin Loop access is closed at Orange County Human Services, the Seymour Center and Chapel Ridge Apartments, as well as at access points in the Glenn Heights neighborhood and at the Municipal Drive construction staging area. A portion of the Wormhole Trail used to access the Pumpkin Loop in the vicinity of the duct-bank project is also closed.
Over the next six months, Carolina Conduit Systems construction crews will install the duct-bank that will eventually provide service to the complex of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill buildings along Airport Drive. Construction vehicles and heavy equipment will be using the cleared corridor, including the sections that cross the Pumpkin Loop, to access the project. Runners, bikers and others who cross over fencing into the construction zone risk serious injury to themselves, UNC officials advised last week.
