Council to consider a resolution of support for Murchison Road improvement projects


The Fayetteville City Council on Monday night is expected to approve a resolution of support for a state Department of Transportation project on Murchison Road that includes the installation of bicycle and pedestrian improvements.

The council meets at 7 p.m. in the FAST Transit Center.

The project area is scheduled for Murchison Road between Country Club Drive and the Interstate 295 Outer Loop.

The N.C. Department of Transportation is proposing a 10-foot-wide, multi-use path on the east side of Murchison Road and a five-foot-wide sidewalk on the west side, according to information in the council’s agenda package.

The project calls for the installation of medians, continuous flow intersections, sidewalks and a multi-use path.

DOT has reviewed multiple options, the materials say, and is proposing a traditional intersection design at Murchison Road and Pamalee Drive.

Also on the council’s consent agenda is the consideration of a bid for sewer work as part of the Phase V annexation. 

“This project will provide sewer service to the construction area at Area 32 East Section 1 for Phase V annexation, consisting of about 15,992 linear feet of gravity sewer, 12,555 linear feet of water main, associated well abandonments, and sanitary sewer improvements with associated appurtenances,” agenda materials say.

T.A. Loving Company has been recommended for the work after submitting a bid of $14.7 million. The Fayetteville Public Works Commission said the company was the lowest responsive bidder.
