Temporary Traffic Signal and Median Crossing Being Removed Wednesday U.S. 64 in Apex Monday, November 19, 2012

RALEIGH — Motorists traveling on U.S. 64 in Apex will have one less traffic signal on their commute as crews remove the signal and median crossover at Green Level Church Road to increase mobility along the U.S. 64 corridor.

Beginning Wednesday, Nov. 28, crews will remove the traffic signal and change the intersection to a right turn in, right turn out intersection. To make this change, crews will install a grass median on U.S. 64. 

The right turn in, right turn out intersection will no longer allow motorists traveling on Green Level Church Road towards U.S. 64 to turn left onto U.S. 64 and motorists traveling U.S. 64 East needing to access Green Level Church Road will no longer be able to turn left onto Green Level Church Road. Motorists are encouraged to use the recently opened Kelly Road bridge over U.S. 64, just west of the Triangle Expressway, as well as Beaver Creek Commons Drive as alternate routes.

The temporary signal was originally placed at the intersection to serve developments in the area prior to the additions of the Kelly Road Bridge, connection from Beaver Creek Commons to Kelly Road and the Triangle Expressway. The traffic signal and median crossover are being removed to enhance mobility along U.S. 64.
