Wake County News

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – The City of Raleigh has closed the 7900-block of Brier Creek Parkway westbound between Skyland Ridge Parkway and Glenwood Avenue due to a water main break.

UPDATE: Incorrectly-installed pipe led to Raleigh water main break that closed road near Brier Creek

The water main break happened around 9:47 p.m. Thursday.

Crews were still on scene making repairs on Friday morning. The road was expected to reopen by 8 a.m. but workers were still out there working past that time. Site supervisor Brandon Miller told CBS 17 the reopening of Brier Creek Parkway had been pushed back to 10 or 11 a.m.

The right turn lane within the 10200-block of Glenwood Avenue is also closed due to the water main break. It will remain closed until the repair is completed, which officials said should be by 8 p.m. Friday.

There is a detour available for the 7900-block of Brier Creek Parkway.

Motorists traveling westbound on Brier Creek Parkway should make a right onto ACC Boulevard and a left onto T.W. Alexander Drive and take that to Glenwood Avenue.
