Town of Indian Trail staff are out in our community every day, checking roads, creeks, sidewalks, drainage and much more to make sure we are serving our residents to the best of our ability. A lot goes into maintaining the quality of life Indian Trail residents have come to expect – from projects big to small.
Take a look at some of the work we’ve recently done in the Brandon Oaks neighborhood to get an idea of how our teams are serving you.
Crews will soon begin cleaning some 100 storm basins throughout the neighborhood. These storm basins are vital in insuring stormwater drains quickly and efficiently from our streets and yards to keep you and your property safe. The storm basin work taking place in Brandon Oaks is part of a $250,000 storm drainage contract currently underway, which is part of an overall $3.9 million stormwater fund balance.
Our Public Works team, after talking with residents in the area about their needs, has extended a sidewalk on Corrona Lane to connect with existing pedestrian-friendly amenities on Sipes Place. The project came in at less than $6,000 – which is more than $7,000 less than it would have taken if contracted out instead of being done by Town staff. Improving walkability in our neighborhoods and commercial areas is a key goal of our team, and the Town of Indian Trail maintains more than 110 miles of sidewalk throughout our community.
Our Engineering team also has worked closely with residents in Brandon Oaks to install traffic calming signage throughout the neighborhood. Working closely with partners such as HOAs helps us identify areas of need and find out what residents would like to see us do to address their concerns. In Brandon Oaks, we are working with neighbors to help address speed limits and keep drivers and pedestrians alike safe.
