Section of Jonesville Road Closing for Rolesville Bypass Work

RALEIGH - As progress on the U.S. 401 Rolesville Bypass project continues, the contractor plans to close a section of Jonesville Road to build its connection with the bypass, starting the morning of Monday, Nov. 24. The roadway is expected to re-open by Sunday, Dec. 21.

The closure is needed so crews can install a drainage system and concrete islands, as well as do paving and pavement marking work for the new traffic pattern. Once re-opened, motorists on Jonesville Road will be traveling on a small portion of the bypass.

A signed detour will be in place, using Mitchell Mill, Forestville and Louisburg roads.

Motorists are advised to use caution while traveling in the area of the road closures and to take the detour routes into account for possible delays. NCDOT reminds motorists to watch for detour signs, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.

Similar work has been done earlier this fall for the Rolesville Road and Pulleytown Road intersections. This section of the bypass is a $25 million project to build 5.8-miles of highway between Louisbury Road and N.C. 96. It is intended to alleviate traffic congestion for commuters between Raleigh and Franklin County in one of Wake County's fastest growing communities.

The new roadway is south of the existing U.S. 401, and has the three intersections before being joined again by the existing highway and reaching N.C. 96. The contractor hopes to have the work completed by the end of the year. A two-mile section of the bypass between Ligon Mill Road and Louisbury Road was completed in December 2011.
