RALEIGH - Motorists who access U.S. 1/64 North off Tryon Road in Cary
will be dealing with a slightly new traffic pattern starting this weekend. As
part of an intersection improvement project, on Friday about 7 p.m., the
contractor will begin shifting a concrete barrier on the northbound ramp. By
Saturday at 6 a.m., traffic will be using a new left lane to get on U.S. 1/64
North to allow crews to safely work on the right lane.
Additional shifts are planned for daytime on Friday, Nov. 6. By the time of
the evening commute, the two left lanes on westbound Tryon Road that turn onto Regency
Parkway will be closed and traffic will use new turn lanes created in the
median. At the same time, two new left lanes on northbound Regency Parkway will
be opened to traffic.
The roadway work is expected to be completed by Thanksgiving, but signal
work will not be finished until late February 2016.
Drivers need to use extra caution in the area for the safety of the
construction crews, and should be ready for lane closures, primarily during
daytime hours. Although, because the roads involved are busy commuter routes, there can't
be any lane closures on U.S. 64, the U.S. 1 ramp, Tryon Road or Regency Parkway
between 6 and 9 a.m., and 4 and 7 p.m. on weekdays.
