CORPUD schedules overnight lane closure along South Main Street June 5-6
The City of Raleigh Public Utilities Department (CORPUD) will reduce to one lane with alternating two-way traffic a portion of the 700 block of South Main Street/US 1A from 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 5, through approximately 2 a.m. Thursday, June 6.
The evening lane closure is necessary to allow crews to inspect a sewer main at the intersection of South Main Street/US 1A and Dunn Avenue. Water and sewer service in the area will not be affected.
Detour signs and flaggers will be in place to manage traffic flow and safely direct motorists through the work area. Delays are expected, so motorists are encouraged to avoid the area if possible and take an alternate route.
For more information, contact CORPUD Utility Crew Supervisor Christopher Worthy at 919-996-2311 or Christopher.Worthy@raleighnc.gov.
The Town of Wake Forest provides this information as a public service. Planned road closures and restrictions are necessary to allow for a variety of work. Motorists are encouraged to use the information to help plan their route and move safely through the work area.
Weather and unforeseen circumstances occasionally prevent work from being completed as scheduled and make it unsafe to reopen lanes or streets when planned. When this occurs, town staff works with contractors to resolve the situation as quickly as possible and reduce impacts to the traveling public.
When traveling through a construction area, drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians are asked to be patient, proceed with caution, and obey flaggers. Drivers should get in the correct lane well in advance and constantly be on the lookout for vehicles merging into adjacent travel lanes as they approach a work zone. Drivers are also urged to double their following distances.
