Town Closes E. Juniper Avenue For a Month

Filed under: News Brief |

The Town of Wake Forest will close E. Juniper Avenue in just outside Downtown Wake Forest for a month while crews realign the street to create a new intersection.

Fred Smith Company, the contractor building the Traditions development off E. Juniper, will have crews working on the street in phases while the road is closed from Monday, Nov. 5 to Wednesday, December 5.

The road realignment is part of the master plan for Traditions, a community focused on senior living located just of Wait Street. The connection to E. Juniper allows for an additional entrance to the development.

Originally proposed by the Ammons family, the project recently came under the stewardship of Wheelock Street Capital, a private equity firm from Connecticut.

Work will begin with the area of East Juniper Avenue from North White Street to Gilcrest Farm Road (SR 1943) and from Gilcrest Farm Road to Oak Grove Church Road (SR 1942).

A full detour will be in place with detour signs and flaggers directing traffic around the work area. Motorists can expect delays and are encouraged to seek an alternate route.
