The project will install an underground storm drain system on Mary St. The improvements will relieve pressure on the existing, undersized storm drain system. It will reduce the risk of flooding by adding capacity to the storm drain system.
Work was temporarily paused on July 1 to assess safety concerns, bring in new equipment and for the Fourth of July.
Safety is a priority for us. We ask that pedestrians and bicyclists, as well as vehicles, follow detours and instructions from flaggers, construction personnel and City staff. In addition, pedestrians should stay out of the construction area. There is a real risk from moving equipment and it is a violation of OSHA regulations.
This project includes the construction of an underground storm drain system on Mary Street from East Bouldin Creek to Newton Street. We will connect the new system to the existing culvert underneath the bridge on Mary Street. We will also replace two existing inlets on Mary St.
