Baxter Street to E Stonewall Street Wastewater Replacement Project
Project phase


 Project updates

  • The current pipe ranges from 15-inch to 24-inch in diameter and the replacement pipe will be 48-inch in diameter. The project will also include the installation of a 60-inch pipe for the future Little Sugar Creek Trunk Line.
  • This will be the first curved wastewater pipeline in Charlotte.
  • This project is anticipated to be activated in phases and completed in late 2021. Utilizing a Progressive Design-Build project delivery method will allow Charlotte Water to work collaboratively with the Design-Build team.
    • Phase 1 (complete): Pearl Street Park to Baxter Street construction began in January 2020 and was completed in summer 2020.
    • Phase 2 (ongoing): Baxter Street to E. Stonewall Street construction began in September 2020 and is expected to take about 18 months to complete; 3,600 linear feet of pipe will be installed by tunnel construction at approximately 35-40 feet underground.

Schedule - Construction began in early 2020 on Phase 1.  Phase 2 work is expected to be completed by April 2023 (construction schedules are subject to change due to weather and other conditions).

Charlotte Water will install a new wastewater pipe to provide for future wastewater needs.

Properties that will be directly affected by construction will be contacted to discuss easement agreements. Areas near construction will be notified before construction.
