Davidson Water Main: Phase III (Extension to NC115)
Construction for the Davidson Water Transmission Main Phase III – Extension to NC115 began in November. Residents and visitors will see numerous construction activities in the area, particularly along Sloan, Gamble, Walnut and Beaty Streets.
During these activities, limited temporary water outages are possible, however, residents and businesses in the impacted area will be notified. Detours will also be in place during these activities. Please observe the posted traffic detours and plan your commute accordingly.
CURRENT ROAD CLOSURE & DETOUR ROUTE AVAILABLE
WHAT: Charlotte Water and its contractor, Propst Construction Company, have begun construction activities on Sloan St. During this time, the road will be closed for through traffic and detour signs will route drivers around the activity site from Mock Rd. to Houston St.
WHEN: Sloan St. will be closed during the following dates:
Monday, Dec. 07 – Friday, Jan. 15 (Note – this date reflects updated information from CLTWater, but may be further delayed.)
The detour route will stay in place overnight but will reopen during the weekend.
This Charlotte Water (CLTWater) project involves the planning, design and installation of a new transmission main generally on the west side of N.C. Highway 115, beginning from the intersection of Main and Walnut streets and ending near the Davidson Town Limits, along NC 115. The new larger diameter water main will improve system pressures and hydraulics, as well as enhance fire protection. Updates will be posted periodically on this website.
What to expect
- Large digging equipment and pipe installation are staged at the corner of Griffith Street and Beaty.
- Periodic temporary water service outages may take place during construction.
- Possible temporary lane closures and detour routes as necessary.
- Paving and site restoration after the pipe has been installed.
The goal of this project is to provide a new larger-diameter water main in the area that will improve system pressures and hydraulics, as well as enhance fire protection. The route for the new water main will generally run just west of N.C. Highway 115, beginning from the intersection of South Main (NC-115) and Walnut streets and ending near the Iredell County line along Shearer Street.
During this period, it may be necessary for Charlotte Water and authorized representatives’ personnel to enter upon a limited number of residential properties to conduct surveys, examinations, appraisals, and other investigations for work on this project. Their activities should not inconvenience residents in any way, and ground personnel will provide notification in advance if access to private property is required.
The following letter was sent out to neighbors immediately impacted by the project and is also provided on CLTWater’s website.
Charlotte Water (CLTWater) is working with a Design Build team to plan and design a new water main to better serve our customers in Davidson. The project is titled “Davidson Water Transmission Main Phase III – Extension to NC 115.” The goal of this project is to provide a new large diameter water main in the area that will improve system pressures and hydraulics, as well as enhance fire protection. Construction of phases I and II of this project were completed in 2018, leading into the design work of this Phase III project. The proposed route will generally run on the west side of N.C. Highway 115, beginning from the intersection of Main and Walnut streets and ending near the Davidson Town Limits, along NC 115.
This letter is to notify you that authorized representatives working on behalf of Charlotte Water will be working on or near your property on one or more occasions during the project’s design phase. This design phase is expected to conclude in June 2020, with construction expected to begin shortly after. During this period, it may be necessary for Charlotte Water and authorized representatives’ personnel to enter upon your property to conduct surveys, examination, appraisals and other investigations as may be necessary for work on this project. Their activities should not inconvenience you in any way.
