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 winter 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, five-ft wide sidewalks on the north side, wide striped shoulders on each side of the roadway, a pedestrian refuge island, high visibility crosswalks and ramps, and accessible transit stops.

  • Curb is being installed from Glenco Drive to McDowell Drive on the south side
  • Waterline and sanitary sewer work is 75% complete
