Dec. 7: Street begins change to one way

Portion of East Jones Avenue set to start conversion to one-way traffic


  During the week of December 7, the Town of Wake Forest will begin the process of converting to one-way traffic East Jones Avenue from South Brooks Street to South Taylor Street.
 
In September, the Board of Commissioners approved an ordinance converting the street from two-way to one-way traffic and incorporating diagonal parking to match the existing one-way section of East Jones between South White Street and South Brooks. The conversion will allow for the installation of approximately 15 new parking spaces in the downtown area.
 
Beginning next week, Public Works crews will begin installing signage and traffic control measures to prepare drivers for the change. Crews will then begin painting angled and parallel parking along the corridor and make final changes for the one-way pattern.
 
Motorists are advised that the street may be closed periodically during the conversion which is  expected to be completed by early January.
 
For more information, contact Transportation Engineer Jonathan Jacobs at 919-435-9441 or jjacobs@wakeforestnc.gov.
