The public is invited to an open house on a storm drain improvement project near 48th Street and Rentworth Drive. The meeting will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, August 28 at Old Cheney Alliance Church, 5201 Old Cheney Road.
The project includes the installation of additional storm drain pipe and inlets near 48th Street and Rentworth Drive to reduce street flooding and improve drainage during heavy rains.
The project design phase will be completed in September, with construction set to begin in spring 2014. The construction process will be phased so traffic can be maintained and disruptions to businesses can be minimized. Construction is expected to take eight weeks. The project is being funded through the 2012 stormwater bond issue.
The open house will give resident the opportunity share ideas with the planning team and to view maps and planning documents. Alfred Benesch and Company is the contracted consultant designing the project.
