Posted April 15, 2013

— Motorists driving on N.C. Highway 55 can expect delays this week while crews perform maintenance work on a bridge near South Salem Street in Apex, the state Department of Transportation said Monday.

One of two through lanes and the center turn lane under the bridge will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

All traffic in both directions also will be stopped for short durations. Flaggers will be in place to control traffic flow.

    Lived here since 01 and have never gone through Apex without a traffic snag. This article implies there will be some sort of miracle and all the congestion will disappear. Really?
