State Contracting, Inc., a contractor working on behalf of the Town of Wake Forest, will close a portion of Cardinal Drive in the vicinity of the Wait Avenue intersection Monday-Friday, Nov. 5-9, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. each day.

A signed detour will be in place along Wait Avenue to notify and direct traffic around the work area. Delays are expected, so drivers are encouraged to use an alternate route if possible.

Cardinal Drive will remain accessible via South Allen Road.

Royal Mill Avenue connection set to open Monday
The Town of Wake Forest will open the new Royal Mill Avenue connection on Monday, Nov. 5, at 7 a.m.

Extending from Flaherty Avenue to Traditions Ridge Drive, the new section will transform Royal Mill Avenue into a through street that connects North White Street to Traditions Grande Boulevard.

Motorists are advised that once the new link opens, the current stop sign at Royal Mill Avenue and Flaherty Avenue will be removed. The three-way stop sign at the intersection of North Franklin Street and Royal Mill will remain.

The Royal Mill Avenue connection is one of several initiatives included in the Town’s “Street Connections Projects.” Others include a Forest Road connection, radius repairs in the South Forest Business Park, the re-striping of Retail Drive and the repaving of the Wake Forest Police Department parking lot. The total cost of these projects is $915,000.

Fred Smith Co., a private contractor working on behalf of the Town of Wake Forest, will alter normal traffic patterns along the portion of Stadium Drive from Glencoe Drive to North Avenue. Lane closures and traffic shifts are necessary to allow crews to continue construction activities as part of the Stadium Drive Complete Street Project.
