Irvins Creek Tributary Trunkline


Project phase


 Project updates

  • This project will alleviate wastewater capacity needs identified through Charlotte Water's Capacity Assurance Program.
  • The current pipe is 8-inches in diameter and replacement pipe is anticipated to be 24 inches.
  • Irvins Creek Tributary Trunk Line project will create a larger receiving wastewater pipe for both a proposed regional wastewater lift station, as well as increasing proposed development demand in Mint Hill.
  • This project is anticipated to be activated by the end of 2019. Utilizing a Progressive Design-Build project delivery method will allow Charlotte Water to work collaboratively with the Design-Build team and complete the project in a shorter timeframe than a traditional delivery method project.
  • ​Crews will tunnel under Matthews-Mint Hill Road (Highway 51).
  • ​​Lane closures will be announced in advance.​
