Monday, January 28, 2019 - 12:38pm

UPDATE: Barnhill Construction Co. has informed Town officials that its crews will begin the initial phase of construction on the cover of the E. Carroll Joyner Park amphitheater a few days earlier than expected. Due to the favorable weather forecast and the availability of additional work crews, the contractor will begin work Thursday, Jan. 31, instead of Monday, Feb. 4, as previously scheduled. The information below has been updated to reflect the new schedule.

Beginning Thursday, Jan. 31, Barnhill Construction Co., a contractor working on behalf of the Town of Wake Forest, will begin the initial phase of construction on the cover for the E. Carroll Joyner Park amphitheater.

The work will include the installation of temporary fencing around the construction site. No trespassing signage will be posted prominently throughout the area. Officials strongly urge park visitors to obey the posted signage and avoid the construction site.

Designed to blend in with current Joyner Park structures and the natural habitat, the new shelter will provide full stage coverage offering performers both shade from the sun and protection from the rain.

Projected for completion in the spring, the facility will be constructed in a manner consistent with the park’s natural beauty and rustic feel.
