Milburnie Road Construction and Detours
The Milburnie Road Traffic Calming Project is scheduled to start construction
Update: The road closure for Milburnie Road has been postponed. Moffatt Pipe, the City’s contractor, started mobilization efforts along the corridor this week, and the road closure is scheduled to begin on Monday, Dec. 17.
As part of this project the City will replace aging sanitary sewer and water lines from Culpepper Road to Chatham Lane.
A detour is required so the City’s contractor, Moffat Pipe, can complete this phase of the project. Starting Monday, Dec. 17, a through traffic road closure will be in effect between King Charles Road and Chatham Lane. The road closure is scheduled to last six months.
Eastbound traffic will be detoured to King Charles Road to Glascock Street to Chatham Lane to Milburnie Road. Westbound traffic will be detoured to Chatham Lane to Glascock Street to King Charles Road to Milburnie Road.
There will also be a temporary parking restriction on Chatham Lane between Milburnie Road and Glascock Street. There will be 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 will be relocated during the detour. The stops between Culpepper Lane and Chatham Lane on Milburnie Road will be relocated to Glascock Street. GoRaleigh busses will make courtesy stops along Glascock Street to accommodate transit riders.
The Wake County Public School System will relocate the school bus stop at the intersection of Culpepper Lane and Milburnie Road. The Douglas Elementary School bus stop will be at Chatham Lane and Milburnie Road, and the Underwood Elementary School bus stop will be at Gibney Drive and Milburnie Road. Wake County Schools will be sending notices to residents in the affected area.
The City understands that the detour will be 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.
