West "A" Street in the area of S.W. 17th Street is closed to through traffic for the next three to four weeks for storm drainage improvements. The detour route is South Coddington Avenue, West South Street and South Folsom Street.
A new storm sewer will be built on the north side of "A" Street, and the open drainage ditch will be re-graded to drain into several concrete flared-end sections in the public right of way. All work is designed to occur within the existing right of way with minimal impact to the existing properties. The contractor, HR Bookstrom Construction, will work with local residents and businesses to maintain access to the area.
Funding for the project is provided by the 2012 storm water bond.
