Town Hall to close early Thursday

Tuesday, June 4, 2019 - 6:17pm

The Wake Forest Town Hall will close at 4:30 p.m. Thursday due to a temporary interruption of water service scheduled as part of Phase 3 of the Downtown Streetscape Improvements Project. The temporary suspension of water service is necessary to allow crews to connect a new water line.

Residents who may wish to conduct business at Town Hall Thursday are urged to take note of the 4:30 p.m. closing time.

Water service is expected to be restored to Town Hall sometime Thursday evening. The facility will operate according to its normal 8 a.m.-5 p.m. schedule on Friday.

Continuing the implementation of the Renaissance Plan for Downtown Wake Forest, Phase 3 of the Downtown Streetscape Improvements Project consists of street and landscape improvements along Sections 1 – South White Street from East Holding Avenue to Elm Avenue and 2A – East Owen Avenue from South White Street to South Brooks Street.

Construction is expected to be completed in fall 2019. The total cost of the project is approximately $5.7 million. For complete information, including project updates, visit www.wakeforestnc.gov/projects/downtown-improvements-phase-3.

The Town completed South White Street, Phase 1: Jones Avenue to Roosevelt Avenue/NC 98 Business in 2010 and South White Street, Phase 2: Elm Avenue to Spring Avenue in 2012. For more information, contact Assistant to the Town Manager Candace Davis at cdavis@wakeforestnc.gov.
