Stormwater Replacement Project Begins October 10 at Stover & Stuart Streets
Posted on: Oct-10-2022
Utilities Stormwater crews will begin a three-phase project at Stover and Stuart streets to replace, upsize and install new stormwater infrastructure. This project will improve the existing storm system to help reduce recurring street flooding in the intersection. Three new inlets will be installed and a new outfall connection will be made to Spring Creek that will include a new water quality feature. The project is expected to take approximately twelve weeks, (weather dependent).
Approximate dates and locations for construction phases:
Phase 1 – Stover Street between Parker Street to the intersection of East Stuart Street (Oct. 3 – Nov. 7)
Phase 2 – East Stuart Street in the 600 block (Nov. 7 – Dec. 5)
Phase 3 – East Stuart Street from the 600 black and into the 700 block, including the intersection and corner of Stover Street (Dec. 5 – Jan. 1)
Roads and intersections are closed for safety and to complete the job as efficiently as possible. Safety for residents, bike riders, commuters, pedestrians and work crews is a top priority. Barricades and fences will be used to clearly mark areas of excavation at nights and on weekends. Detour routes will be provided as needed. Please keep children and pets away from construction zones.

Closing curtains and shades during the summer helps keep your home cooler.
Wearing an extra layer of clothing during the winter and lowering the thermostat a few degrees can help save money and energy.
When it rains, pollutants go down storm drains, contaminating our water bodies. Small leaks and drips add up. Don’t drip and drive.
