Kelly Road Bridge Over U.S. 64 Opens Next Week Tuesday, September 18, 2012

RALEIGH —A section of Kelly Road from U.S. 64 to Jenks Road in Wake County will close on Wednesday, Sept. 19 for one week, weather permitting.

During the closure, Kelly Road will remain open to local residents. All other motorists will use the signed detour on U.S. 64, Green Level Church Road and Jenks Road.

This temporary closure is necessary for the completion of the Kelly Road/U.S. 64 interchange and improvements to the Green Level Church/Kelly Road intersection.  

Kelly road will re-open with access to the new interchange and bridge over U.S. 64, on Wednesday, Sept. 26.

NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
