Brentwood Place Storm Drainage Improvement Project

The Brentwood Place Storm Drainage Improvement Project covers approximately 235 acres. The project drainage area is bound to the south by Remount Road, to the west by Remount Road and Weyland Avenue, to the east by Barringer Drive, and to the north by Marlowe Avenue. This project will reduce flooding and erosion in the project area. 

In early 2013, the project was divided into two phases so that work within the Railroad right-of-way can begin while the Real Estate and Permitting Phases are finalized for the remainder of the project (Phase II).

Each Phase will be bid and constructed independent of the other. See below for limits of Phase I and Phase II.

- Reduce property, structure, and street flooding throughout the neighborhood.

- Address channel erosion problems within the project area to provide a more natural, stable stream system.

Project Area

Phase 1

Cost:  $13,300,000
Please note that this figure includes all costs associated with the project such as planning and design, utility relocation, consultant fees, construction, permits and landscaping.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services (CMSWS) project team will manage the Brentwood Place Project through the phases listed below. 

A general description and range of typical timeframes for project phases is given below.  Specific work is conducted during each phase while an emphasis is made on public involvement throughout the entire project.
Planning Phase (September 2008- October 2010)

During the planning phase, public meetings are used to obtain input from property owners. Several improvement alternatives are developed and evaluated to determine the best solution. A recommended alternative is presented to the public for comment at the end of the planning phase. The planning phase of a project typically lasts 12 to 27 months.

Design Phase (Started October 2010; Phase I completed February 2013; Phase II completed June 2013)
During the design phase, construction drawings are developed for the alternative selected during the planning phase. Many details must be addressed including the determination of channel widths and lining types, utility relocations, and easement locations. The design phase of a project typically lasts 21 to 34 months.

Permitting Phase (Started October 2012; Phase I completed December 2012; Phase II completed June 2013)
During the permitting phase, the required water quality permits are obtained from Federal and State governments. Other permits such as permission to work within railroad and NCDOT rights-of-way may also be obtained during this phase if necessary. The permitting phase of a project typically lasts 3 to 9 months; however, it may overlap other phases.

Property Easement/Acquisition (Started November 2011; Phase I completed October 2012; Phase II completed August 2014)
The City's real estate staff works with citizens and businesses to acquire either Conservation Easements or Storm Drainage Easements. In addition, temporary construction easements may also be needed to access work areas. The City requests that easements be donated to provide access to your property to make the recommended improvements and provide future maintenance. The bid phase will begin after all easements are acquired. The easement acquisition phase of a project typically lasts 9 to 12 months.  Most easements have been acquired. However, the City’s real estate staff is still working to finalize several acquisitions.

Bid Phase (Phase I Completed July 2013; Phase II Completed August 2013)
During the bid phase, the final plans will be circulated to qualified contractors for a competitive bidding process. By state law, the lowest responsible bidder is awarded the construction contract. The bid phase of a project typically lasts 5 to 6 months.

City Council awarded the Phase I contract to Ferebee Corporation at the July 22, 2013 council meeting. Phase II was awarded to Zoladz Construction Co., Inc. at the August 26, 2013 council meeting.

Construction Phase (Phase I Started April 2014; Phase II Started November 2013 - End by Winter 2016​)
Throughout construction, efforts will be made to minimize disruption to nearby property owners. Construction of proposed improvements will be supervised by City inspectors. Notifications of key construction dates will be mailed to residents prior to construction. Because projects vary in size, the construction phase of a project typically lasts less than 2 years, but due to the size of this project, the construction phase can be expected to last from 2 to 3 years.
