Rain Holds Up Completion of Repairs to Old Stage Road in Wake County

RALEIGH - Mother Nature did not cooperate today, with the day-long rain preventing the scheduled paving of Old Stage Road in Garner at the location of an emergency pipe replacement project. That means the road will remain closed near Vandora Springs Road until Thursday.

The road was closed earlier this week when it was discovered a cross-pipe under it began to fail at one end, and was causing damage to the side of the road.

The road was closed and the pipe was dug out. A new pipe was put in place Tuesday, with paving planned for today and a re-opening by tonight. Crews will try paving again on Thursday.

The detour in place uses Vandora Springs Road, Timber Drive and Woodland Road to get around the closure.

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.
