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 will be paving between the Bridge over Richland Creek and Wingate in order to widen the roadway.
Phase I of the project is nearing completion with the final striping pattern in place from Glenco Drive to Richland Creek. The Contractor will place a final layer of asphalt once the entire project is completed and pave the Multi-Use Path.
Crews are working on two of three retaining walls along the project. Wall #1 will begin once traffic has been shifted to the southern widening. Wall #2 is nearing completion with only stone veneer needing to be installed. Wall #3 piles have been installed. Concrete panels will be installed in the coming weeks.
