Current Weekly Status:

The design engineer completed an evaluation of the additional damage at Cross Creek resulting from Hurricane Florence.  Preliminary cost estimates and alternatives for Hurricane Florence repairs were reviewed by the City on December 12, 2019. 

The City is still in the process of coordinating with FEMA for approval of funding for the Hurricane Florence Damage; however, the design engineer has been instructed to continue work on the Hurricane Matthew repair portion of the project.  Final approved plans for the Hurricane Matthew phase are due at the end of March 2019.

Survey of the additional damage of Cross Creek will begin in January and the project will require environmental permit approvals from NCDEQ and the US Army Corps of Engineers.  A flood model will also be prepared and submitted to the state for approval.
