This improvement project includes construction of two detention ponds joined by stormwater box culverts. The stormwater infrastructure will be installed along the future Suniga Drive right of way north of Vine Drive from Redwood Street east to the Lindenmeir Outfall.

A 12-inch waterline also will be added from Redwood Street to Lemay Avenue.
