Stormwater Drainage and Water Quality Improvement Projects
Projects Under Construction
NW 48th from W Vine to W Adams
Currently a two-lane roadway, NW 48th Street will be constructed as a four-lane divided road between W. Holdrege Street and Highway 34. South of W. Holdrege Street, the road has been designed as a six-lane road to match NDOR’s interchange project, though only five lanes are being built now. The segment between W. Adams Street and Highway 34 is not scheduled for construction at this time, but preliminary design plans have been completed.
Leighton from 60th to 61st - Storm Drainage Improvements
The storm sewer project involves reconstructing and upsizing of the storm sewer pipe that runs along Leighton Ave. as well as the storm sewer pipe running along N. 60th St. The work also involves the addition of multiple storm sewer inlets that will be installed on Leighton Ave. and N. 60th St. The project is being done in order to increase drainage capacity within the area.
Normal from South to 56th - Pavement Repair Project
Construction will include repairing or removing and replacing deteriorated concrete panels, joints and curbs; and sealing joints and cracks. Other work includes removing and replacing damaged storm sewer inlet tops, curb ramps that do not meet Federal and local standards, and replacement of traffic signal elements impacted by the work. Pavement repairs from 48th to 58th are expected to begin September 12, 2016.

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.
