The privately financed bridge and road project is projected to cost about $6 million and take a year to build, said Winthrop Allen, director of development for Magnolia Development, an affiliate of Raleigh-based Cherokee Investment Partners.
Construction could start as early as the fall, Allen said. The public comment period for the permit request ends July 31. Vehicular access to the proposed roadway and bridge to the Magnolia site would be via the Rutledge Avenue exit off eastbound Interstate 26.Motorists would have the option of turning right either on Mechanic Street at the foot of the off-ramp or on Heriot Street. The road is an extension of Petty Street, Allen said.It's proximity to the freeway will help minimize traffic on surface roads. "It's important to have direct access to Interstate 26," Allen said.
which never operated on the site but inherited the environmental cleanup through acquisitions before Ashley II bought the property, Ashley II will split the $7 million cost to repair the land, said Winthrop Allen, director of development for Magnolia.
"Exxon Mobil was working to clean it up for industrial use, then Magnolia Development comes in and buys the operation and says the intended use is not going to be industrial," Allen said.
Soil up to 8 feet deep in the most heavily contaminated areas will be hauled off the site and disposed of at a controlled facility elsewhere, Allen said.Any low-level contaminated soil will be consolidated, buried on site and capped with a parking garage, building or road, he said.
"Our ultimate objective is to get the hot stuff off-site and shrink the footprint of where that stuff is," Allen added.Ashley II doesn't have a specific user lined up to build on the site once the work is completed."They will start showing up once the work is done and the roads go in," Allen said.
