Weather permitting, the project is expected to last less than 2 weeks. Local traffic can access businesses and residents in the area, but the City asks that cars not park on North Marshall Street between NC Highway 54 and Market Street during the project to allow the contractor to complete the work as quickly as possible. The City of Graham invites anyone who visits the area to park in the municipal parking lot off of North Marshall Street. Motorists wishing to use North Marshall Street will use East Elm Street, North Main Street, and Albright Avenue for the 0.40 mile local detour route.

NC Highway 54 will be closed for approximately 24 hours during the project to allow for replacement of a sanitary sewer line connection within the street. NC Highway 54 will not be closed during normal weekday business hours but may be closed overnight during the project or during a weekend during the project. Motorists on NC HWY 54 travelling through the area will use East Elm Street and North Main Street (NC HWY 87) during the sanitary sewer connection as the signed 0.50 mile detour route.
