Lakeview Road Improvements

This project spans approximately 1.5 miles and will add transportation capacity along Lakeview Road from Cushing Drive to Old Statesville Road to accommodate the additional traffic expected as a result of the construction of NCDOT’s I-77 Lakeview Road Direct Connect Interchange project. Improvements under this project will include pavement upgrades, intersection modifications, additional through/turning lanes, upgrading drainage infrastructure, and pedestrian and bicycle facilities.

Graham Street Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Project

This project will install approximately 2.5 miles of 72 count single-mode fiber optic cable installed in mostly existing conduit. There are also small portions of new directionally bored, hand-dug, and trenched conduit. This project includes entrances and communications equipment for six existing traffic signal control cabinets and the installation of seven traffic management cameras. The project limits are North Graham Street beginning at West Sugar Creek Road to Mallard Creek Road to West WT Harris Boulevard. This project includes fiber optic cable splicing, testing, Ethernet equipment communications, and traffic management cameras and equipment.

East Boulevard Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Project

This project will install approximately 1.53 miles of 36 count single‐mode fiber optic cable installed in new directionally bored, hand dug and trenched conduit, existing conduit and aerial attachments to poles. This project includes entrances and interconnect equipment for four existing traffic control cabinets and the installation of four traffic management cameras. The project limits are East Boulevard beginning at Queens Road West to Euclid Avenue. This project also includes fiber splicing, testing, Ethernet equipment communications, and traffic management cameras and equipment.

N. Tryon St- 36th St. Streetscape

The project will provide infrastructure improvements that include sidewalk, curb and gutter, milling- resurfacing, pedestrian refuge and signals, cross walks, planting strips, street trees, pedestrian and street lighting, bike lanes, and on-street parking. The project will provide 0.4 miles of streetscape along 36th street between North Tryon Street and Davidson Street. The project will tie into the Blue Line Extension project on 36th street.

I-277 Rail Trail Bridge – Construction

This project will construct a pedestrian bridge over I-277 to connect South End to Uptown. The bridge will be located just west of the existing light rail bridge and will include aesthetic elements to create a signature design. It will also include a new pedestrian rail crossing on the Morehead landing area and will tie the Stonewall plaza into the existing light rail platform.

Westbourne Storm Drainage Improvement Project

This project is bordered by Old Plank Road to the north, Bellhaven Boulevard to the south, Larkhaven Road to the east and West Laporte Drive to the west. The drainage system consists of open channel and closed pipe systems underneath City maintained roads. Significant erosion and numerous sink holes have been observed. It has been identified that failing infrastructure exists underneath City maintained roads and the DM-team has made several intermediate repairs where ends of pipe systems have fallen off into the open channels. Additionally, transverse roadway overtopping has been identified at Ravenswood Road and Balfour Lane. There are existing A priority requests as far back as 2005.

Elvis Storm Drainage Improvement Project

This project consists of two culverts in series under Cedarbrook Drive and Denbur Drive. Both culvert crossings consist of triple barrel corrugated metal pipe systems. This is a project that was identified by the Asset Management Team and both culvert crossings are active failing and preliminary calculations show that the culverts are also undersized.

Bonwood Storm Drainage Improvement Project

This project is located near the intersection of Bonwood Drive and South Wendover Road. A previous DM-Team project replaced 100 linear feet of corrugated metal pipe under Bonwood Drive near 3853 Bonwood Drive due to system failure. Evidence of surface failure in the yard at 3853 Bonwood Drive exists upstream and Asset Management has recently identified deteriorating system downstream under Bonwood Drive. Crawl space flooding has also been identified at 2205 Wrenwood Pond Court due to lack of storm drainage infrastructure to intercept runoff from Wendover Park Lane.

Chatham Storm Drainage Improvement Project

The purpose and need for this construction project is to improve the storm drainage infrastructure (i.e. pipe systems and culverts) to reduce flooding and to enhance degraded stream reaches to reduce erosion and improve water quality.  This project is under review.  Location and project details will be provided after review is complete.
