Glenbrook Drive and Dacian Road Stormwater Improvements

Stormwater System Upgrades

We are planning to make updates to the stormwater system near the intersection of Glenbrook Drive and Dacian Road. These upgrades will help reduce road and home flooding. It'll also improve the stream channel in this area. 

This project originated from the South Raleigh Drainage Studies.

Planning

We are working on the scope for this project. The consultant is expected to start the design for the stormwater upgrades in the next few months. 

Proposed Upgrades

The following changes will help reduce flooding and allow stormwater to flow through the system more easily when it rains. 

  • Raise part of Glenbrook Drive and Dacian Road; 
  • Replace stormwater pipes at both street crossings; 
  • Improve stream channel about 300 ft. upstream from the pipes; and, 
  • Upgrade the stormwater system that goes past Elmhurst Circle. 

Surveying (Spring 2022)

Staff and consultants completed surveys and data collection.

A public meeting was held August 2022 to gather feedback from local residents. Follow-up meetings and contact with property owners were carried on after the public meeting.
