Large tree falls, blocking Wade Avenue in Raleigh

16 June 2022

— A downed tree was blocking traffic on Wade Avenue near Glenwood Avenue on Thursday morning.

The massive tree fell around 5 a.m. WRAL’s Nia Harden arrived on scene before 7 a.m. and was told by crews it would take at least an hour to fully reopen the road.

At 7:30 a.m., crews were cutting limbs off the tree to make it lighter and easier to remove.

The tree was blocking the eastbound lanes, and crews hope to reopen the westbound lanes of Wade Avenue first before reopening the road fully.
