S.T. Wooten, a contractor working at the future site of Capital Chevrolet, will reduce to one lane with alternating two-way traffic the portion of Shearon Farms Avenue, from Clover Bank Street to Capital Boulevard/US 1, Thursday-Friday, Aug. 30-31, and Tuesday, Sept. 4. The work is scheduled from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. each day.

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.
