Wayne Memorial Drive Closure Begins Monday

A detour will reroute traffic around a closed section of Wayne Memorial Drive starting Monday, June 11.

Wayne Memorial Drive just north of Goldsboro will be closed between Hare Road and Stoney Creek Church Road as contract crews begin a project that includes installing a culvert.

The N.C. Department of Transportation earlier this year awarded a $2.6 million contract to S.T. Wooten Corp. of Wilson to replace a drainage pipe with a more durable concrete, box-shaped culvert underneath the road.

The detour will send motorists to Tommys and Hare Roads.

The road is scheduled to reopen by mid-August before the schools are back in session.

Under the contract, crews will also resurface and widen the existing lanes of Wayne Memorial Drive between Woodside Drive and Saulston Road, a distance of 2.4 miles.

That work will be completed by the fall.

    When will this reopen? I have not seen work or updates, nor really seen any progress on it. Way to go, only 2 months behind schedule with no end in sight. Unbelievable the ineptitude of the powers that be.

    Is there any update on when the road will re open. It doesn’t look that is going to happen before schools are back in session.
