This is a Street and Sidewalk Petition Project approved by City Council on 9/01/2015.  The proposed improvements will upgrade Lorimer Road to current standards with 2-lane curb and gutter section.  The street’s ultimate section will entail a 27’ wide section from back of curb to back of curb, a 5 ft. wide sidewalk on the west side with mainly 6’ setback, replacing the existing bridge over Bushy Creek with two concrete box culverts, add new driveway aprons and matching existing driveway surface material, improve area drainage by eliminating swales and collecting and conveying stormwater runoff in underground drainage system, grading, restoration and other appurtenant works.  The project is scheduled to be bid in May and the construction to start in August 2018.  Project completion is anticipated by end of 2019. Efforts have been unsuccessful to obtain needed easement from the following property owners; therefore it is recommended that a resolution of condemnation be authorized.

Property to be condemned: All easements and/or other interests in the property of the above-named project as shown on an exhibit prepared by: City of Raleigh Engineering Services Department Survey Section and entitled “Permanent and Temporary Construction Easement Acquisition Exhibits for the City of Raleigh” such easements and/or other interest identified and listed in the back up information associated with this request.
