This project is in the final design phase. The City is reviewing the current design plans to replace the aging storm drain on Dorothea Drive. A public meeting with residents also was held in Nov. 2017 to provide an update on the project and share the design plans.
If you have questions about this project or the public meeting, please contact Todd Rall, stormwater project manager, at 919-996-4006 or Tod.Rall@raleighnc.gov.
The intent of this project is to replace the culvert that runs under Dorothea Drive with a new, updated stormwater structure that will allow the stream to flow better and reduce localized flooding of the area. The project also will address and eliminate existing public utility concerns and allow this section of Dorothea Drive to meet current City street and sidewalk design standards.

Initially, repairs were made to the existing box culvert after City staff found sink holes at several locations along the culvert. It was determined after the repairs were made and the structure was further assessed that the culvert presents significant structural concerns and needs to be replaced.
