Traffic Alert - Friendship Chapel Road

Thursday, December 20, 2018 - 3:13pm

Wynn Site Development will reduce to one lane with intermittent two-way traffic the portion of Friendship Chapel Road from Gateway Commons Circle to Heritage Hills Way Thursday-Friday, Dec. 27-28, from 7 a.m.-4 p.m. each day.

The lane closure is necessary to allow crews to install a water line for the future Townes at Gateway Commons.

Signage and flaggers will be in place managing traffic flow and safely directing motorists through the work area. Delays are expected, so motorists are encouraged to take an alternate route if possible.

For more information, contact Construction Inspector Supervisor Bryan Smith at  

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.
