Milburnie Road Construction and Detours
The Milburnie Road Traffic Calming Project is scheduled to start construction
Moffat Pipe, The City’s contractor, started construction on Jan. 2, 2019. The contractor is working on replacing the aging sanitary sewer and water lines from Culpepper Road to Chatham Lane.
A detour is required to complete this phase of the project. A through traffic road closure is in effect between King Charles Road and Chatham Lane. The road closure is scheduled to last six months.
Eastbound traffic is detoured to King Charles Road to Glascock Street to Chatham Lane to Milburnie Road. Westbound traffic is detoured to Chatham Lane to Glascock Street to King Charles Road to Milburnie Road.
There is also a temporary parking restriction on Chatham Lane between Milburnie Road and Glascock Street. There is no parking allowed on either side of the street. The parking restriction will be in place for the duration of the sanitary sewer and water line work along the corridor.
People living along the corridor will have access to their property at all times, unless work is done on their driveway. During driveway work on-street parking will be available.
Changes to transit and school bus stops
Some transit stops along the corridor are relocated during the detour. The stops between Culpepper Lane and Chatham Lane on Milburnie Road are relocated to Glascock Street. GoRaleigh busses will make courtesy stops along Glascock Street to accommodate transit riders.
The Wake County Public School System relocated the school bus stop at the intersection of Culpepper Lane and Milburnie Road. The Douglas Elementary School bus stop is at Chatham Lane and Milburnie Road, and the Underwood Elementary School bus stop is at Gibney Drive and Milburnie Road.
The City understands that the detour is an inconvenience, and we ask for your patience while the contractor completes this significant utility upgrade along the corridor.
Once the new underground utilities are in place, Moffat Pipe will begin the installing the traffic calming measures along the corridor.
