Traffic Alert – Capital Boulevard/US 1

Tuesday, February 14, 2023 - 3:50pm

Turner Asphalt, a contractor working at the future Hawthorne at the Forest, will periodically reduce to one lane portions of (northbound and southbound) Capital Boulevard/US 1 from Burlington Mills Road to South Main Street/US 1A throughout February from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. each day. The periodic lane closures are necessary to allow crews to perform work in the median.

Signs and barrels will be in place directing traffic through the work area. Motorists may wish to avoid the area if possible and choose another route.

When traveling through the construction zone, drivers are urged to proceed with caution, watch for vehicles merging into adjacent travel lanes and double their following distances. For more information, email Brad Stewart at

The Town of Wake Forest offers an interactive map that gives residents a user-friendly and convenient way to view local road closures and restrictions. Available at, the Traffic Alerts Map allows visitors to point and click on current road and lane closures throughout Wake Forest. Motorists are encouraged to use the information to help plan their route and move safely through work areas.
