Traffic Alert - Dr. Calvin Jones Highway/NC 98 Bypass

Monday, June 25, 2018 - 10:10am

Drivers should expect delays along westbound Dr. Calvin Jones Highway/NC 98 Bypass today through Monday, July 16, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Wellons Construction, a contractor working at the future site of Siena Phase 2, will reduce the westbound portion of Dr. Calvin Jones Highway/NC 98 Bypass from Siena Drive to South Main Street/US 1A, so crews can install a new turn lane.

No detours will be posted, but signs and flaggers will be in place to safely direct traffic through the work area.

Motorists should expect delays and consider using 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 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.
