Stadium Drive Complete Street Project
The Town of Wake Forest is implementing a Complete Street vision along Stadium Drive (SR 1930) from Capital Boulevard (US-1) to North Wingate Street (SR 1954). This will improve both vehicle and pedestrian safety as well as traffic flow. Work began in spring 2018 and is anticipated to be completed by late 2019.
The typical section includes three lanes with curb and gutter, left-turn lanes at intersections and driveways, a 10-ft wide multi-use path on the south side, 5-ft wide sidewalk on the north side, wide striped shoulders on each side of the roadway, a pedestrian refuge island, pedestrian signal at Rock Springs Road, high visibility crosswalks and ramps, and accessible transit stops with a new bus shelter.
Crews have begun grading and preparing for placement of the 10-ft multi-use path from Glenco Drive to McDowell Drive as crews continue to finalize Phase 1 of the project.
Motorists may notice that crews have re-striped Stadium Drive near Wingate Street. The right turns lanes have been removed to allow crews to begin installation of storm water pipe in this area as crews prepare to begin the Roundabout Construction at the intersection of Wingate Street and Stadium Drive.
Crews have completed all the water and sewer relocation throughout the project.
Crews are working on Retaining Walls throughout the project. Stone Veneer installation is expected to begin at the Seminary Apartments in the coming weeks.
