Wake Forest police had closed both eastbound and westbound lanes because a construction crew ruptured the line in the Oakwood Estates area.

    Hello helicopter pilot. Keep up the good work!

    I'm in the helicopter and things look great

    I am about 3 miles North of 98 on Capital. Looks like it is moving, but i hear sirens now.

    Question. If I'm driving from Henderson to Raleigh on U.S. 1/Capital Blvd., is U.S. 1 having traffic back up at Hwy. 98? Do I need to take another route?

    The Forest McDonalds is horrible. The only good thing about the 98 Bypass is that's where the new Ale House is.

  • Is it Friday yet Jun 11, 2007

    Yea, but now you have to drive all the way around to get to MacDonalds!

    I guess this is the only way to get people to use that 98 Bypass.

    I am watching the helicopter now. Tyler Run is correct.

    I think they mean Tyler Run. There is no Tyler Rd in Wake Forest.
