Workers told ABC11 Tuesday morning that it’ll be at least until Wednesday afternoon before the road is repaired and can reopen. Before that, officials said it would remain closed through the Tuesday morning commute.

The break happened around 8 a.m. Monday on Waldo Rood near SW Cary Parkway.

The asphalt cracked, leaving Waldo Rood Boulevard closed from Cary Parkway to MacArthur Drive and Cary Parkway at Waldo Rood Boulevard is reduced to one lane in the southbound direction.

“If you can, avoid the area for the remainder of the day but (we) definitely regret and recognize the impact this is having on the traffic flow and so we’re working diligently to dedicate all of our resources to take care of this as soon as possible,” said Matt Wetherell, Operations Coordinator for the Town of Cary.
