Work at the culvert is underway. Crews are digging out a section of the culvert to place the new sanitary sewer lines. Once those lines are in place, the contractor will remove the old culvert and get ready for the installation of the new one. For safety reasons, residents are requested not to enter the area around the culvert as it is an active work zone.
During this phase of the project please use the phase I detour.
Crews also completed a retaining wall near Woodlinks Drive the week of July 8. The retaining wall will enable the installation of the new sidewalk along the street.
We understand that road construction can be an inconvenience and we thank you for your patience during construction.
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.
