Water Transmission Line Replacement
Through regular testing and maintenance, the City of Raleigh identified a very high chance of failure for the waterline that runs from the water tower on Chamberlain Street to the intersection of Hillsborough Street and W. Morgan Street. 

The construction of the 36-inch waterline is in its final stages with finishing touches being completed.

The most up-to-date detour map is available here.

Project updates can be found on the City's project website or by contacting Janeen Goodwin, project manager at Construction schedules are subject to change due to unforeseen conditions such as weather, construction delays or conflicts.
