Planning

Study Process

We looked at how often and how long it floods in areas of South Raleigh. During this process, we held public meetings and collected input from the community. 

Then, we determined the best way to improve the stormwater system and address impacts from creek flooding. 

Upcoming Projects 

  • Dana Drive - Setting up a scope for the project. 
  • Glenbrook Drive and Dacian Road - Setting up a scope for the project. 
  • Rose Lane - More details coming soon. 

We should have more details on the plan for these projects in November.

Background

Rose Lane
Flooding from Walnut Creek occurs often. When this happens, residents cannot get to or leave their homes. These areas are affected: Maplewood Lane, King Arthur Road, Jimmy Carter Way, Belafonte Drive, and Poitier Place. 

Glenbrook Drive and Dacian Road
Properties on these streets experience stream channel erosion and yard flooding.

Dana Drive
This area experiences frequent street and yard flooding.
