Traffic Alert – East Juniper Avenue

Tuesday, May 12, 2020 - 4:56pm

State Contracting, a private contractor working on behalf of the Town of Wake Forest, will close the portion of East Juniper Avenue from South White Street to East Jubilee Court Wednesday-Friday, May 13-15, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. each day. The temporary closure is necessary to repair work performed in October as part of the Town’s ongoing road resurfacing project. Although access to driveways along this portion of East Juniper will be maintained at all times, Wake Forest Loop stops will not be available.

A signed detour will be in place directing motorists around 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. 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.
