Why are they working on Castle Hayne Road in front of Wrightsboro Elementary School during the school year?

The question writer says that “this is creating a terrible traffic backup as well as a safety hazard during morning pickup at the school” and wonders if work will continue during the holidays.

Answer: A contractor is installing a water line beneath Castle Hayne Road in the area of Wrightsboro Elementary School. The work requires a lane closure through the area, said Jennifer Garifo, N.C. Department of Transportation spokeswoman.

“The contractor doing this work is required to minimize traffic impacts and delays during school drop-off and pick-up times by not working during these times and working with the school to assist with traffic,” Garifo said.

The N.C. Department of Transportation does not allow lane closures during holidays due to the increased amount of traffic on area roads, she added.

“Weather permitting and barring no problems, the lane closures should be done and the road open to its normal traffic pattern by early November” 2010, Garifo said.

    About enormous pits on each side of Castle Hayne Rd, traffic barrels etc. in front of Wrightsboro School,
    what will happen Election Day Nov. 2? The school is the polling place for CF-1 precinct.
    This will be a mess when voters come to vote. Where will they go? Customarily voters enter out front after parking south of school.
