Cross Creek Bank Stabilization at Lamon Street


The bank of Cross Creek near 280 Lamon Street was damaged by Hurricane Matthew on October 8, 2016.  The left bank was eroded near the City’s Parks and Recreation administration building and washed away a portion of Linear Park Trail.  Bank erosion was worsened by Hurricane Florence in September of 2018 and extended further downstream, encroaching into Cross Creek Cemetery.

Project Overview:

The City will repair approximately 600 linear feet of the failed left bank along Cross Creek near 280 Lamon Street.  A complex solution was required to repair the nearly 40-foot high bank.  Repairs include construction of a vertical sheet pile wall at the upper portion of the bank and a stream restoration with a boulder wall at the bottom of the slope.  The mid-level portion of the bank will be stabilized with vegetated material or rip rap, depending on the slope.  The City will also reconstruct the Cross Creek Linear Park Trail and install pedestrian guardrail along the project corridor.

Project Funding:

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) obligated funds for this project on February 29, 2020 in the amount of approximately $7.5 million.
