Town Hall and other indoor facilities will be closed Friday, April 19 in observance of Good Friday, but regular solid waste collection will occur as usual. On Monday, crews will resume the special spring trash/yard waste pickup. We still need to complete yard waste collection in areas south of Poole Drive but north of Timber (portions of gold and green routes). Crews also need to pick up mattresses, electronics, TVs and tires in various parts of town. For more information about any waste collection matters, please contact Public Works at (919) 772-7600 Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. (closed Friday, April 19).
BOND PROJECT UPDATE: Town Installs New Crosswalk Signs Near Park and Greenway Access Point
Post Date:12/05/2018 4:50 PM
The Town has recently installed new pedestrian crosswalk signs at Aversboro and Buffaloe roads—by the entrance to White Deer Park—and on Timber Drive near Buckingham Road and the South Garner Greenway connection to Timber. Pedestrians wanting to cross the street can press a button on the signpost and warning lights on the signs will flash.
The signs do not eliminate the need to stop and look both ways before safely crossing the street, but they should help to make motorists more aware of pedestrians seeking to enter the crosswalks.
The signs were paid for with Street and Sidewalk Bonds from the 2013 Garner Bond Program.
