Traffic Alert – Forestville Road

Wednesday, October 7, 2020 - 3:13pm

Today through Saturday, Oct. 10, Fred Smith Company, a contractor working on the future Wheatfield Shopping Center, 1009 Forestville Road, will reduce to one lane with intermittent two-way traffic a portion of Forestville Road in the vicinity of Foundation Drive daily from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. The temporary lane closure is necessary so crews can tap the water main.

Signage, cones and flaggers will be in place to safely direct motorists through the work area. The lane closures may cause minor delays, so motorists may wish to avoid the area and take an alternate route.

For more information, contact Transportation Engineer Jonathan Jacobs at 919-435-9441 or jjacobs@wakeforestnc.gov.

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.
