Current Activity

Posted Tuesday, Oct. 2

This project is part of the North Ridge Phase IV and V storm drainage improvement and stream stabilization project. The design consultant, Brown and Caldwell, Inc., has surveyed cross sections of the stream in the project area and are finalizing the design plans, which should be finished this fall.

Required permits for this project have been received from the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality and the US Army Corp of Engineers. Brown and Caldwell, Inc. is in the process of getting necessary permits from the City of Raleigh.

The project also requires the City to receive real estate easements from specific properties that are in the project area. These residents have been notified. Prep work for surveying easement areas is taking place in October.

All necessary easements, permits, and private utility relocations will need to take place before construction can begin.

If you have questions about this project or the easement acquisition process, contact Carrie Mitchell, PE, at 919-996-4068 or


Project design for Upper Audubon Drive and Wagram Court includes the installation/replacement of a 24-inch pipe near 7109 Laketree Drive and 7901/7905 Audubon Drive. A portion of the stormwater flow will be routed through a new 24-inch stormwater pipe system along Wagram Court.

In addition, approximately 1,200 feet of stream between Rainwood Lane and Knights Way and an additional 280 feet of stream downstream of Knights Way will be stabilized to accommodate the streams 10-year storm event flows in the North Ridge community.

This project is located along a stream near North Ridge Country Club Lake within the North Ridge community. It is located in the Perry Creek Watershed. A history of flooding events in the area resulted in public meetings in April and June 2006. An engineering study was completed in December 2006. The engineering study recommended improvements to the existing undersized storm drainage system. Phases one through three have been completed.
