UNDER CONSTRUCTION Shillington STORM DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENT PROJECT Dear Resident: October 2013 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services and its contractor, the Ferebee Corporation (Ferebee), continue with construction on the Shillington Storm Drainage Improvement Project. • Weather permitting, construction and repaving the streets at the intersection of Shillington Place and Bar Harbor Lane are expected to be complete in the next several weeks then reopened to traffic. • Construction continues with drainage culvert installation along Greencastle Drive to Honors Court. Ferebee has also cleared construction limits for the channel enhancement and stabilization between Bar Harbor Lane and Prince George Road. This phase of construction will utilize natural bio-engineering channel stabilization techniques to help alleviate ongoing channel erosion. A key step to the success is a very extensive and detailed planting plan along the slopes of the bank, at the top of the channel bank, and outside the channel bank. Channel erosion has also exposed an underground Duke Energy power line that Storm Water Services and Ferebee are now coordinating its relocation. This line relocation will need to occur before finishing the channel stabilization.
