Crews have finished the installation of the culvert! Now they are installing curb and gutter from Garland Drive to Merwin Road. Once they finish the installation of the curb and gutter in this section they will install a layer of asphalt and re-open the roadway. We are expecting this to take a few weeks.
We understand that road construction can be an inconvenience and we thank you for your patience during construction.
During this phase of the project please use the phase I detour.
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.
