The City of Raleigh selected SEPI for roadway widening improvements design for Barwell Road, a 1.4-mile collector facility.

The Barwell Road improvement project will widen Barwell Road from Rock Quarry Road to Berkeley Lake Road and realign Pearl Road with Barwell Road at its intersection with Rock Quarry Road. The project will also include proposed sidewalks and bicycle lanes.

Traffic in this area includes approximately 14,000 vehicles per day resulting from local residents and the adjacent Barwell Road Elementary School. Access to the school, Raleigh Fire Station 26, and residential neighborhoods will be considered in the design approach.

Surveying services included horizontal and vertical control surveys; ground control for aerial photogrammetry; utility locations; corridor topographic surveys; tree surveys; and land records research, property marker ties, and survey analysis for 145 properties. Post-design services will include easement and right-of-way mapping and staking. SUE services involved designating, surveying, and mapping an estimated 67,000-LF of underground utilities.

SEPI will provide streetscape design along the corridor and will work to coordinate Tree Conservation Areas (TCA) with the City of Raleigh Urban Forestry Department.
