Traffic Alert – Wake Drive & Forest Road

Monday, February 17, 2020 - 3:55pm

The Town of Wake Forest will reduce to one lane with intermittent two-way traffic portions of Wake Drive and Forest Road Thursday-Friday, Feb. 20-21, from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. each day. The temporary lane closures are necessary to allow crews to recut the ditches to improve drainage and trim foliage along the roadway.

Signage and flaggers will be in place directing motorists through the work area. Delays are expected, so drivers are encouraged to avoid the area and use an alternate route if possible.

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 at all times. 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.
