Traffic Alert - Cardinal Drive

Monday, November 12, 2018 - 7:06am

Due to inclement weather last week, the closure of Cardinal Drive, in the vicinity of the Wait Avenue intersection, will be extended until Tuesday, Nov. 13. The closure is in effect today and tomorrow from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. each day.

State Contracting, Inc., a contractor working on behalf of the Town of Wake Forest, is in the process of installing infrastructure as part of the Priority Pedestrian Corridor Project. The initiative will provide sidewalk connections along East Wait Avenue from Allen Road to Traditions Grande Boulevard.

A signed detour will be in place along Wait Avenue to notify and direct traffic around the work area. Delays are expected, so drivers are encouraged to use an alternate route if possible.

Cardinal Drive will remain accessible via South Allen Road
