Lake Wheeler Road between Maywood Avenue and Centennial Parkway will be closed for construction starting April 15. The City of Raleigh is repairing a sinkhole and replacing the stormwater pipe that runs underneath the road. The road will be closed for 8-12 weeks.
During an inspection in November 2018, the City noticed that the 70-year-old stormwater pipe under Lake Wheeler Road was beginning to fail causing a sinkhole at the intersection. Initially, they planned to repair the pipe. Now they are replacing it.
