Portion of Dunn Creek Greenway to be closed starting Monday

Tuesday, December 5, 2023 - 12:43pm

Beginning Monday, Dec. 11, Wellons Construction, Inc., a contractor working on the Friendship Chapel Road (FCR) Eastern Extension on behalf of JPM South, will temporarily close a portion of the Dunn Creek Greenway in the vicinity of Wilts Dairy Point. The closure is necessary to allow crews to extend Friendship Chapel Road from Heritage Hills Way to Remey Avenue effectively connecting FCR from South Main Street/US 1A to Jones Dairy Road.

Signage and barricades will be posted to inform the public of the closure, as well as the signed detour directing trail users around the closure via Wilts Dairy Point, Friendship Chapel Road, and Heritage Lake Road.

Construction is expected to be completed in early summer 2024.

Measuring one mile, the 10-foot wide paved and boardwalk trail is designed for biking, hiking, and enjoying nature. For more information, visit wakeforestnc.gov and search “Dunn Creek Greenway.”
