Neuse River East Parallel Interceptor

Existing infrastructure found in this area is undersized and will be replaced and upgraded.

This project creates a new pipeline that is required for increased wastewater flow capacity. Flow will be diverted from the existing sewer system on the west side of the Neuse River to the new interceptor. Construction will cross the Neuse River in two locations. The first crossing will be near Poole Road. The second crossing will occur at the north end of the project at Anderson Point Park. Project will help to prevent sanitary sewer overflows during wet weather events. 

The project includes 26,000 linear feet of 84-inch and 96-inch gravity sewer interceptors along the Neuse River beginning at the Neuse River Resource Recovery Facility and ending at Anderson Point Park. The new sewer interceptor, along with the currently under construction East Neuse Regional Pump Station will significantly increase the wet weather capacity of the entire sewer collection system. Once complete, this new pipe will work in conjunction with other improvements along Crabtree Creek and Walnut Creek to further decrease sanitary sewer overflows to the City's wastewater system.

The project will also allow for elimination of two existing City pump stations including the Neuse River Pump Station at Anderson Point Park and the Riverview Pump Station along Poole Road. Eliminating these two pump stations will reduce system operation and maintenance costs and further reduce the risk of sanitary sewer overflows.

Park Construction of NC, Inc. was issued the Notice to Proceed for construction on April 12, 2021; construction completion will be April 12, 2023

One of the first project construction phases will be crossing the Neuse River at Anderson Point Park and the Poole Road parking lot at the Neuse River Greenway Trail. The river crossings construction must occur during the June 16 to August 15, 2021 time period according to Federal permitting guidelines. The National Marine Fisheries Service has determined these areas of the Neuse River may contain habitat that may be used by the Atlantic sturgeon for spawning, foraging, and refuge. This time period is outside of the predicted spring and fall spawning period for Atlantic sturgeon, the likelihood of sturgeon presence coinciding with this in-water construction is greatly reduced.

Work at Anderson Point Park that began on June 1, 2021 in the vicinity of the Neuse River Greenway Trail is now complete. The Greenway Trail and parking lot are now open.

Work at the Poole Road Canoe Launch that began on June 1, 2021 along the Neuse River Greenway Trail is now complete. The Greenway Trail and parking lot are now open.

History

This project was recommended in the 2008 Sanitary Sewer System Capacity Study. It was then updated in 2014 to meet the City of Raleigh's sewer system needs through planning year 2040. The study also recommended building the proposed East Neuse Regional Pump Station. Park Construction of NC, Inc. was awarded the project construction contract in December 2020. Award approval went to City Council on January 19,2021. Plan designed with initial submittal for permitting and easement acquisition. Completion of easement exhibits and outreach to property owners. Permitting packages were being prepared prior to submission to permitting agencies for approval.
