There has been a delay in the relocation work that the gas company, Dominion Energy, needs to do at the culvert. This work must be completed before our improvements in that location. Therefore, the contractor will start work installing the new storm drainage system.
Last week some of the new storm drain pipes were delivered, and on March 11, we expect to see some storm drain boxes on site. This week crews are scheduled to begin work at Merwin Road and run south installing the storm drainage system.
Lorimer Road will remain open to traffic during this work. But, with flagging operations and intermittent lane closures.
Once the relocation of the gas pipes is complete the contractor will shift gears and start work at the culvert.
We know that roadway construction can be inconvenient, and we thank everyone for their understanding and patience.
The Raleigh City Council has approved a petition request to improve Lorimer Road from Kaplan Drive to Garland Drive. The Proposed improvements consist of:
- Storm drainage;
- Replacement of existing culvert;
- New paving with concrete curb and gutter;
- Sidewalk; and,
- Road signage.

Petition Projects are neighborhood streets projects initiated by property owners through the Street Improvement Petition Program. Improvements may include paving of gravel streets, the addition of curbs and gutters, or resurfacing of streets that do not have curbs and gutters. Upon completion, a portion of the project cost is passed to the abutting property owners in the form of an assessment.
