RALEIGH - A section of Old Stage Road in Garner is closed for a pipe
replacement project. A crosspipe that runs under the road near Vandora Springs
Road began to fail at one end, and was causing damage to the side of the road.
For safety reasons it was decided to close the road and replace the
pipe. A new pipe was put in place today, and the pipe is being covered over with
backfill this afternoon. Crews plan to put new pavement in place starting
Wednesday morning and re-open the road by Wednesday night.
The detour in place uses Vandora Springs Road, Timber Drive and
Woodland Road to get around the work site.
The N.C. Department of Transportation
reminds motorists to watch signs for road closure and detour information, stay
alert and obey the posted speed limit.
