Section of Optimist Farm Road in Raleigh closed for repairs after heavy rain

Posted: Updated:

 A section of Optimist Farm Road in Raleigh will be closed for pipe repairs after Tuesday night's heavy rain washed out a pipe running under the road.

The section of the road that will be closed is between Lake Wheeler Road and Johnson Pond Road.

The N.C. Department of Transportation said it will take several days to prep for the repairs and then replace and rebuild the road.

A detour route has motorists traveling east on Optimist Farm Road, turning left on Johnson Pond Road, right on Ten-Ten Road and right on Lake Wheeler Road.

Westbound drivers turn right on Lake Wheeler Road, left on Ten-Ten Road and left on Johnson Pond Road.
