Full Release

CARY, NC – We’re in the home stretch! The Town is putting the finishing touches on the Cary Parkway and High House Road Intersection with new, decorative traffic signals. To switch to the new traffic signals, the existing signals will be taken out of operation from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. March 13, weather permitting. Cary Police will direct traffic. To ensure safety, lanes will be intermittently closed during this time. The contractor will close the intersection for no more than 15 minutes at a time to remove the traffic signal mast arms that extend over the street. Drivers traveling through the area may experience minor delays and should use caution.

Most of the improvements to the intersection are complete, including new turn lanes, a unique bus shelter and stamped brick crosswalks. Crews will remain onsite to complete final touch up work, including landscaping, which will be complete by spring; intermittent lane closures may be necessary to perform this work.

“We are excited to wrap up this key project on this signature intersection on schedule,” said Amir Nezarati, project manager. “Thanks again for the business and citizen support we received over the last year. We encourage drivers to continue to utilize Waze as they navigate Cary’s streets.”
