Traffic Alert – Heritage Links Drive

Wednesday, February 21, 2024 - 11:43am

Beginning Thursday, Feb. 22, and continuing through mid-March, Fred Smith Company, a contractor working on the 2024 Wake Forest Road Resurfacing Project, will reduce to one lane with intermittent two-way traffic portions of Heritage Links Drive daily from 7 a.m.-5 p.m.

The temporary lane closures are necessary to allow crews to remove and replace curb and gutter and install new ADA ramps.

Affected residents along Heritage Links Drive were notified of this work in advance by door hanger. During the scheduled work dates, parking will be prohibited along the street. Vehicles left on the street on the scheduled work dates will be towed at the owner’s expense.

Once the work begins, signs and flaggers will safely direct motorists through the work areas. Delays are expected, so drivers are encouraged to avoid the area if possible and take an alternate route.

Targeting over 20 Wake Forest streets and roadways, the 2024 Road Resurfacing Project consists of concrete work which began in mid-January, and asphalt work scheduled to start in March (weather permitting). The initiative involves full depth patching, roadway repairs, and repaving, along with the replacement and repair of curb and gutter. Several black ADA ramps are also being replaced with yellow mats per national standards.
