Beginning May 23rd through October, portions of Kelly Road from Olive Chapel Road to Apex Barbecue Road will be partially closed (down to one lane, instead of two) for construction of the Western Transmission Main project. Road closures will be smaller sections of road and will move daily as construction progresses.
The Western Transmission Main Project involves installation of 24 inch waterline along Kelly Road. This provides a larger transmission waterline from our connection with the Town of Cary’s water system and extends it to the Tingen Road water tank. Construction of the project includes erosion control measures, select tree removal, and pipe installation. Tree removal was carefully considered on a tree-by-tree basis and decided on based on tree health and absolute necessity for the project. Many trees being removed will be rehomed to other areas in Apex.
Construction is expected to end in October, but is dependent on weather and/or any issues that arise during construction.
