West King Street to Be Repaved

Thursday, May 25, 2023

Updated at 10:36 a.m. on May 30, 2023: Residents will have access to their homes overnight June 11 while the first block of West King Street is closed to through traffic.

The state has scheduled a subcontractor to repave West King Street in June. If weather conditions allow, the work will start Sunday night, June 11, between Churton and Wake streets.

The subcontractor plans to mill and resurface the first block in one night, starting at 9 p.m. June 11 and finishing by 6 a.m. June 12. The first block will be closed while the crews are working.

Milling and resurfacing the rest of West King Street from Wake Street to West Hill Avenue will be done during the day. One lane will be closed at a time to allow vehicles to pass by the roadwork.

Drivers should expect delays and are encouraged to pay attention to safety signage and any signaling or flagging.
