Water Line Replacement Project Set to Begin Along Durham Road

The City of Raleigh Public Utilities Department (CORPUD) and Park Construction of NC, Inc., will begin work to replace existing water lines along Durham Road/NC 98 Business on Tuesday, Dec. 1. The initiative is part of the Richland Creek Sanitary Sewer Interceptor Project.

Beginning Monday, Dec. 7, the portion of Durham Road/NC 98 Business from Richland Drive to South Wingate Street will be reduced to one lane with alternating two-way traffic on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Although the contractor will maintain entrances and exits to local residents and their properties, delays are expected, so motorists are encouraged to take an alternate route if possible.

Residents in the work zone should not experience interruptions of water service. In the event service interruptions are necessary, CORPUD will notify residents in advance.

The water line replacement project is expected to be completed in April 2016. The initiative is one of the City of Raleigh’s Capital Improvement Projects designed to improve the Town of Wake Forest service area water system.
