Traffic Alert – South Main Street/US 1A

Monday, February 20, 2023 - 9:57am

Beginning at approximately 10 a.m. today, Monster Tree Service will reduce to one lane with intermittent two-way traffic the portion of South Main Street/US 1A from East Holding Avenue to West Vernon Avenue. The temporary lane shift is necessary to allow tree crews to remove a tree that poses a danger to public safety. The work is expected to be completed by 11 a.m.

Signage and cones will be in place to manage traffic flow and safely direct motorists through the work area. Delays are expected, so motorists may wish to avoid the area if possible and take an alternate route. For more information, contact Urban Forestry Program Manager Luke Devores at [email protected].

The Town of Wake Forest offers an interactive map that gives residents a user-friendly and convenient way to view local road closures and restrictions. Available at, the Traffic Alerts Map allows visitors to point and click on current road and lane closures throughout Wake Forest. Motorists are encouraged to use the information to help plan their route and move safely through work areas.
