Stormwater Drainage and Water Quality Improvement Projects
Projects Under Construction
14th from Sumner to South - Water Main Replacement
The water main along 14th Street from Sumner to South will be replaced.
2015 Water Main Replacements
NW 48th from W Vine to W Adams
Construction on NW 48th Street between West Vine Street and West Adams Street is scheduled to begin the week of March 30, 2015. Currently a two-lane roadway, NW 48th Street will be reconstructed as a four-lane divided road between West Holdrege Street and West Adams Street.
56th from Old Cheney to Shadow Pines
The roadway is designed as a 4-lane paved section with turn lanes and a raised median. Construction is scheduled to begin on Monday, April 20, 2015, weather permitting.
Old Cheney from 70th to 82nd
Because of rising traffic volumes, Old Cheney's existing two-lane rural street will be upgraded to a four-lane urban street with left turn lanes, curbs and gutters.

Stormwater Improvement Bond Issues
Stormwater improvement bond issues provide for design and construction of urban storm drainage projects, flood reduction projects, stream rehabilitation and waterway work, design and construction of master planned basin projects, water quality projects incorporating best management practices, and preliminary engineering for basin master plans to determine future projects. These improvements reduce stormwater runoff and flooding if major rains occur, reduce flooding impacts from major stream channels, prevent or repair degraded stream channels, and improve water quality.
