Work on Western Wake Freeway Requires Temporary Lane Closures This Week on U.S. 64 in Apex Tuesday, May 01, 2012

RALEIGH — As crews continue work on the Western Wake Freeway, motorists can expect nighttime lane closures on U.S. 64 in Apex this week, weather permitting.

From Tuesday, May 1 through Saturday, May 5, one lane in each direction on U.S. 64 between N.C. 55 and Kelly Ridge Drive will be closed between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. One lane will remain open in each direction. 

Motorists should also expect temporary lane closures on U.S. 64 between Kelly Road and Green Level Church Road this week. The lane closures will allow the contractor for the Western Wake Freeway to conduct bridge work overnight. Motorists are advised to take an alternate route during these closures; however, the road will be reopened to allow traffic through at one hour intervals. The closures will take place as follows:

·         The eastbound lanes of U.S. 64 will be closed from 12 midnight until 6 a.m. on the morning of Thursday, May 3. The westbound lanes of U.S. 64 will remain open during this time. 

·         The westbound lanes of U.S. 64 will be closed from 12 midnight until 6 a.m. on the morning of Friday, May 4. The eastbound lanes of U.S. 64 will remain open during this time.
