PROJECT FACTS

  • The Department of Water Management is improving the existing water and sewer infrastructure between Pettigrew and the Durham Freeway from William Vickers Avenue to Dillard Street. The work also extends along Dillard and Ramseur from Pettigrew to Fayetteville. The locations of the improvements can be viewed on the project area map.
  • Construction is complete for Buchanan Boulevard. The design phase is complete for Phase 1 and construction will begin winter 2020 and last 15 to 18 months. Phase 2 construction is expected to begin in spring 2021 and last approximately 12 months. Concurrent with Phase 2, construction will begin on the Lakewood Avenue Sanitary Sewer Replacement Project to replace the existing sewer outfall along Lakewood Avenue.
