WAKE FOREST — Construction continues on the Forestville Road sidewalk extension project and the Durham Road multi-use path project.
The town began construction on the Forestville Road sidewalk project Aug. 12. A five-foot-wide sidewalk is being built along the east side of Forestville Road, extending from Heritage Station Shopping Center to Foundation Drive.
The existing traffic signal at the intersection of Forestville Road and Foundation Drive will also be upgraded to include a pedestrian phase with push-button assembly.
Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed in October.
Grading on the Durham Road multi-use path project began Aug. 26. The project includes construction of a 10-foot wide multi-use path on the south side of realigned Durham Road from the new NC 98 Highway/Dr. Calvin Jones Highway to Wake Union Church Road. Construction is expected to be completed in November.
The estimated cost of these projects is $302,652 with a 20-percent local match. Wake Forest received federal grant funds from the Surface Transportation Program-Direct Attributable funds administered through the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization and NCDOT.
