Carter-Finley Stadium tunnel won’t be ready for home opener

Wake County News

Recent rains have caused delays in finishing up the tunnel that will connect the N.C. State Fairgrounds with Carter-Finley Stadium.

So far in august, RDU International Airport has received 3.15 inches of rain.

That is 1 inch above average. 

This much rain has not been good for construction. 

The tunnel is being built to help with traffic flow during football games and other big events.

But also to create a safer route for pedestrians to cross Trinity Road.

Unfortunately, the tunnel will not be open for the Wolfpack’s first home game against James Madison on Sept. 1. 

The deadline for the construction company is Sept. 15, which is time for N.C. State’s game against West Virginia. 

Until the tunnel is completed, pedestrians will continue to cross trinity road like they’re used to.
