Parkw​ood Phase 2 Storm Drainage Improvement Project

Project is in the design phase.

​Late​st News


​​On September 24, 2018, Charlotte City Council approved adding portions of the Parkwood Phase 2 Storm Drainage Improvement project to Charlotte Water's design-build work on the Belmont and Optimist Park Wastewater Pipe Replacement project. This amendment creates a guaranteed maximum price for additional storm drainage and streetscape improvements along 16th Street. The Charlotte Water project occurs along the same road as Engineering and Property Management's 16th Street streetscape project and a portion of Storm Water Services' Parkwood Phase 2 project. The project team made this recommendation after learning that these three projects were in design together. Combining them will minimize the impact to residents, create cost efficiencies and decrease the length of time needed to close 16th Street during construction.

Storm drainage improvements will include an approximately 1,500 linear-foot culvert along 16th Street from North Tryon Street to the CATS Blue Line tracks. This culvert will reduce flooding at the intersection of North Tryon and 16th Streets and support upstream drainage improvements. ​


The Parkwood Storm Drainage Improvement Project (Phase 1 and Phase 2) will reduce street and structure flooding throughout the neighborhood and address stream erosion to provide a more natural, stable stream system. Phase 2 is located within a drainage area of approximately 269 acres.

Estimated Cost: TBD*

*includes all costs associated with this project such as planning and design, utility relocation, consultant fees, permits, construction, and landscaping.

The project team will manage the project through several phases. Specific work is conducted during each phase and public involvement is emphasized throughout the process. Learn more about project phases.
