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.

  1. October 2022

Beginning on Monday, Oct. 31, a new one-way traffic pattern will be implemented around the construction site of The 203 Project on S. Greensboro Street.

This will affect traffic movement on Roberson (westbound only), Maple (northbound only) and Carr (eastbound only) streets. This will affect traffic movement around the project site only. 

For accessing the Libba Cotten Bikeway, cyclists are encouraged to use Carr Street to avoid oncoming traffic on Roberson Street. 

South Greensboro Parking Lot closed beginning Oct. 17

Beginning Monday, Oct. 17 the parking lot located at 203 S. Greensboro St. will be closed to the public as crews prepare for construction of The 203 Project.
