Portion of Sanford Creek Greenway to be closed week of August 17 for construction & blasting operations

Contributed to WSJ by the Town of Wake Forest

During the week of August 17, PulteGroup, a contractor working on the Regency at Heritage, will close the portion of the Sanford Creek Greenway from Marshall Farm Street to Forestville Road. The closure is necessary to allow crews to install an outlet pipe.

Barricades and signage announcing the greenway closure will be posted at the trail’s Marshall Farm Street and Forestville Road entrances. Greenway users are urged to obey the signs and avoid the area.

In addition, morning and afternoon blasting operations will occur throughout the week in the same area. The work is also related to the development of the Regency at Heritage.

The blasting operations are expected to produce construction-related noise and sounds associated with demolition activities, but residents should not be alarmed.

Residents are advised of the following alerts both prior to and following a blast:

  • One-Minute Warning: Three long horn blasts, separated by short pauses.
  • All Clear Signal: A prolonged horn blast following inspection of the blast.

For more information, contact Construction Inspections Supervisor James Mapp at 919-435-9445 or jmapp@wakeforestnc.gov
