Construction for the West Drewry Lane Culvert Replacement and Stream Stabilization project is ongoing. The Contractor, Browe Construction Company, has installed the 6-ft by 7-ft box culvert and the two headwalls.

In the upcoming weeks, Browe will begin the stream bank stabilization part of the project that will include grading the stream banks and installing boulder vane structures. The structures will assist with reducing streambank erosion and provide grade controls. Browe will also be installing new sections of sewer and water mains and restoring the roadway.

W. Drewry Lane will be closed during construction. Please follow the traffic detour that is in place for this project.

For your safety, please do not enter the construction area. Work hours will be Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. with no work scheduled on the weekend except in an emergency or with prior approval from the City.

If you have any questions about upcoming construction, contact Carrie Mitchell, PE, at Carrie.Mitchell@raleighnc.gov or 919-996-4068.

Summary

The purpose of this project is to make improvements to the storm drainage system in this area by replacing the stormwater culvert on West Drewry Lane and stabilizing a nearby stream, which has experienced severe erosion. The 72-inch metal pipe will be replaced with a reinforced concrete box culvert. Upgrades also will be made to the sanitary sewer and water systems in the area.

History

In September 2012, a metal stormwater pipe at West Drewry Lane was severely bent and eroded due to heavy rainfall. This erosion resulted in unsafe conditions causing the closure of West Drewry Lane until emergency repairs were made. The emergency repairs were completed in 2013 and additional upgrades will be made to further improve the storm drainage system.
