Traffic Alert – South Main Street/US 1A

Monday, January 4, 2021 - 10:47am

Raleigh Water will close the portion of South Main Street/US 1A from East Holding Avenue to Elm Avenue Saturday, Jan. 9, beginning at 7 a.m. The closure is necessary to install a manhole along the 600 block of South Main. Water and sewer service in the area will not be affected.

Once the installation is complete, crews will repave the area with new asphalt. As a result, South Main may be closed until late Saturday or early Sunday morning, Jan. 10.

Detour signage will be in place to manage traffic flow and safely direct motorists around the work area. Delays are expected, so motorists are encouraged 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.
