Road Closed!


Family Care is just a few hundred yards away from a busy storm water drain underneath Carpenter Fletcher Rd that goes between two flood plain zones. Because of this, the City of Durham often closes the section of Carpenter Fletcher Rd between Highway 55 and our office’s driveway so they can perform repairs. When that happens, patients at Family Care must take an alternate route to their appointments.

Access will be closed from the Highway, so you will need to take a slight detour through Meridian Parkway to attend your appointment. Please allow about 3 extra minutes for your commute and contact our office if you have any questions or need help with directions. We apologize for the inconvenience!

You will have to go around two different orange roadblocks / barriers. The road is only fully closed beyond our driveway, so you still have permission to bypass these blockades on your way to the appointment.
