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 completed surveying cross sections of the stream in the project area and finalizing the design plans, which have been submitted for review along with the required permit applications for this project. The City also has started the process to relocate private utilities in the project area.
A public meeting was held on March 20 to provide residents with an update on the status of the project and the most recent design plans. Questions about this meeting can be directed to Carrie Mitchell, PE, at 919-996-4068 or Carrie.Mitchell@raleighnc.gov.
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.

|Winter 2019||Phase IV and V construction begins|
|Spring 2020||Phase IV and V construction complete|
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.
