Upper Walnut Creek Sanitary Sewer Improvements

Improvement project will replace aging materials to meet future infrastructure capacity demand.

This project consists of a much-needed sewer interceptor replacement from the Walnut Creek softball complex on Sunnybrook Road to South State Street. This major artery of the City of Raleigh’s wastewater system is at overcapacity and is showing signs of deterioration. Project will replace 1950’s 42-inch and 1990's 48-inch diameter reinforced concrete pipes. A new 60-inch diameter line will be installed.
