As part of the ongoing South White Streetscape project, JW Grand will close the portion of South White Street from East Jones Avenue to Wait Avenue today so crews can install the original waterline with flowable fill - a material similar to concrete.
Detour signs and flaggers will be in place throughout the day directing traffic around the work area.
Water service in the downtown area will not be affected and the roadway is expected to reopen by 6 p.m.
For more information about the South White Streetscape Project, contact Assistant Town Engineer Holly Miller at 919-435-9443 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Town of Wake Forest provides this information as a public service. Motorists are reminded that weather and road conditions can change rapidly and should plan accordingly. When traveling through a construction area, drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians are asked to be patient, proceed with caution and obey flaggers at all times. Planned road closures and restrictions are necessary to allow for a variety of work. Dates, times and work locations are subject to change due to inclement weather or last-minute changes in work schedules.
