The contractor on the Buffaloe Road sidewalk project will need to close a section of Buffaloe Road between Old Scarborough Lane and White Deer Trail to install storm drainage systems.
The road will need to be closed for an estimated four or five days to complete the work and allow for the safe passage of vehicular traffic. A detour will be put in place using Old Scarborough Lane. Weather permitting, the detour and work will begin Saturday, Dec. 10.
The Town and the N.C. Department of Transportation have asked the contractor to begin the work over a weekend to minimize the impact to workday traffic and to limit traffic increases in the affected neighborhood.
The Garner Police Department will have an increased presence in the area during this time period in an effort to prevent speeding on Old Scarborough Lane and Buffaloe Road.
The Town has instructed the contractor to install a message board on N.C. 50 notifying traffic that Buffaloe Road will be detoured. There will also be detour signage on Aversboro and Buffaloe roads.
