Area 5 Flood Mitigation Project Phase 1

Project Update July 16, 2018

This is the first phase of the flood mitigation project that is planned to alleviate the flooding issues at the intersections of Lawndale Avenue and S. Washington Avenue and S. Hine Avenue and Lawndale Avenue. The project includes the installation of storm sewer improvements along the project corridor. Along with the installation of a larger storm sewer, additional inlets are being added to collect the surface water in order to convey the water away from the area. The project also includes updating the handicap ramps at the intersections and resurfacing the roadway.

Last the contractor continued installing the new storm sewer along American Ave heading east from Moreland Blvd and along Millwood Ln from American to the north.

The contractor will continue the storm sewer installation.
