City to observe Veterans Day on Nov. 11
Because no collections are scheduled on Mondays, the regular schedule for garbage, recycling and yard waste will not be affected by the holiday. These items will be picked up as normal the rest of the week. The city’s Yard Waste Center will be closed on Veterans Day but will operate on a regular schedule the remainder of the week.
Capital Area Transit and Triangle Transit will operate normal schedules on Veterans Day. From staff reports

Bypass work will close Rolesville Road
The closure is scheduled to start at 10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, with the road re-opened by 6 a.m. Monday, Nov. 4, to handle rush hour traffic.
Through traffic going toward the town of Rolesville will be detoured to turn left on Mitchell Mill Road, right on Jonesville Road and right on U.S. 401 to return to Rolesville Road. Drivers leaving Rolesville will follow that route in reverse. There will be local traffic access for Century Farm Road.
The work is part of a $25 million project to build 5.8 miles of the bypass between Louisburg 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 will go south of the existing U.S. 401 and include intersections with Jonesville Road, Rolesville Road and Pulleytown Road before being joined again by the existing highway just before reaching N.C. 96. It is expected to be open by July 2014. A two-mile section between Ligon Mill Road and Louisburg Road was completed in December 2011. From staff reports
