NCDOT announces overnight lane closures along South Main Street/US 1A beginning Sept. 24

Town of Wake Forest News

Beginning Sunday, Sept. 24, at 6 p.m., S.T. Wooten Corp., a contractor working on behalf of the NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT), will initiate a series of overnight lane closures along the 2100 block of South Main Street/US 1A.

Starting Sunday, crews will close one eastbound and one westbound lane along South Main Street/US 1A in the vicinity of the Aldi Grocery Store, 2132 S. Main St., from 6 p.m.-6 a.m. The overnight lane closures will continue each evening throughout the week until the work is completed.

The lane closures are necessary to allow crews to pour concrete medians and repave the roadway as part of an ongoing DOT safety improvement project.

No detours will be posted, but signs and flaggers will be in place to manage traffic flow and safely direct motorists through the work area. Delays are expected, so motorists are urged to avoid the area if possible and take an alternate route.

The DOT scheduled the work during off-peak travel times in order to minimize the impact on area drivers.

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.
