Town officials say a Friday morning gas leak will continue to affect traffic on N.C. 98 (Wait Avenue) from Middlegame Way to Winding Way until at least 5:30 p.m.
The town reported at 10:30 a.m. that both lanes of traffic would remain closed for another two or three hours while a bypass line is installed.
Once the bypass is installed, a single lane will open for traffic in both directions to share.
Wake Forest reported the leak about 8 a.m. It was caused when a construction crew snagged an 8-inch gas line, the town said.
