Traffic Alert – Dr. Calvin Jones Highway/South Main Street Intersection

Friday, October 7, 2016 - 11:45am

Fred Smith Co., a contractor working at the future site of the Lidl supermarket, will close one lane at the intersection of the Dr. Calvin Jones Highway/NC 98 Bypass and South Main Street/US 1-A on Monday, Oct. 10, at 7 p.m.

The temporary lane closure is necessary to allow crews to locate an underground water line. The work, which began Thursday evening, Oct. 6, was originally scheduled to resume tonight, but was rescheduled for Monday due to the threat of inclement weather.

In the event the work is not completed Monday evening, crews will resume their efforts at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11. The initiative will continue each night throughout the week until completed.

Flaggers will be in place to safely direct traffic through the work area. Delays are expected, so motorists are urged to avoid the area if possible and take an alternate route.

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.
