Brentwood Estates Sewer Improvements

Sewer outfall replacement to improve infrastructure capacity.

This project will replace an existing sewer outfall with 3,300 linear feet of 24-inch wastewater line and 2,900 linear feet of 18-inch wastewater line in the Brentwood neighborhood. Construction will run from its downstream connection at Marsh Creek to north of New Hope Church Road.

Construction

Construction:

The sewer improvement construction project was awarded to contractor, Moffat Pipe, Inc. Construction activities began in January 2021 in the southern end of the project near Marsh Creek/Long Bow Drive areas. Currently, the contractor is installing sewer line behind residences along Huntleigh Drive and boring work near Huntleigh Drive.
Beginning the week of June 7th, survey crews will be placing stakes and flagging along the project corridor in the next phase of the project from Huntleigh Drive north to New Hope Church Road. Following survey work, tree clearing and fence installation in the easement will occur.  
Beginning June 14th, the City’s contractor will begin installing new water lines within Huntleigh Drive near Greywood Drive. This construction work will be performed with flaggers and one lane of traffic will be maintained. For the safety of other motorists, construction workers, and pedestrians, please drive with extra care through this area paying close attention to traffic control signs, signals, and flagmen. This work is projected to take approximately one week. 
Huntleigh Drive is scheduled to be closed for through traffic beginning the week of June 21st due to upcoming water and sewer installation work within the roadway of Huntleigh and Greywood Drive. The closure will be located at Huntleigh and Greywood and currently expected to be in place for six weeks. Appropriate detours and signage will be in place. 

Please note that construction schedules can be impacted by inclement weather. Updates will be provided as work progresses.

History

This improvement project will eliminate Sanitary Sewer Overflows associated with wet weather overflows and prevent sewage from damaging the nearby streams and wetlands.

A preliminary engineering study was completed in 2017 with preliminary and final design following and completed in Spring 2019.

The project was initially identified as part of the 2014 Sanitary Sewer Capacity Study. The study identified the wet weather capacity shortfalls as well as a history of observed Sanitary Sewer Overflows. Sanitary Sewer Overflows are a violation of the City of Raleigh’s permits and create potential environmental hazards. The study stated that backup from the limited capacity in sections of lower slopes causes the model to predict overflows and that the risk of overflows means the project should be critical due to potential impact on health and safety.
