The City of Raleigh Public Utilities Department (CORPUD) and Park Construction of NC, Inc., began work on Dec. 1 replacing the existing water lines along Durham Road/NC 98 Business. The initiative is part of the Richland Creek Sanitary Sewer Interceptor Project.
Beginning Wednesday, Dec. 9, the portion of Durham Road/NC 98 Business from Tyler Run 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.
The contractor is expected to discontinue work on the project during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, so normal traffic flow will be restored during these periods.
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.
