Utility line relocation on Walnut Street near Crossroads
Beginning this week and as weather permits, the Town of Cary will temporarily close one lane in each direction of Walnut Street from Buck Jones Road to the northbound US 1/64 ramp to allow utility companies to relocate lines and poles. The lane closures will be in place as necessary weekdays from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. through the end of March. Minor delays are expected, and drivers should obey posted signs within the construction area. The work is necessary in preparation for the Walnut Street Pedestrian and Traffic Improvements Project, a 2012 Cary Community Investment Bonds project set to begin construction this summer.
