As requested by Grey Stone Baptist Church, the City Council agreed Monday night to close Warner Street, a little-used connector between Hillsborough Road and Main Street.
"It was only today I went on Warner Street," said Councilman Eugene Brown, a Durham native. "It is not exactly a major thoroughfare."
Warner Street carries about 194 vehicles a day, primarily traveling on church business. For its entire 850-foot length, the street runs through Grey Stone property, and the church wants to use its right of way for a new daycare and classroom building.
