Traffic Alert – Old Dairy Drive

Monday, July 8, 2019 - 2:08pm

Crews from Fred Smith Co., a contractor working in the Holding Village subdivision, will reduce to one lane with intermittent two-way traffic the portion of Old Dairy Drive from South Franklin Street to Silo Point Drive from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, July 10-12 and July 17-19. Lane closures are also scheduled to occur along area side roads and alleys.

The lane closures are necessary to allow crews to complete a paving project throughout much of Holding Village.

No detours will be posted, but signs and flaggers will be in place to manage traffic flow and safely direct motorists through the work area. Delays are expected, so motorists may wish to take an alternate route if possible.

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.
