Project Update (May 2018)
The week of May 14th, the contractor continued installing culverts and regrading the ditches between Morse Avenue and Lunt Avenue, west of Busse Road and east of Tonne Road. The week of May 21st, they will continue with culvert installation and regrading work in the same area. The contractor also began hydro-seeded completed ditches. During the regrading of the ditches, the original concrete lined ditch, which was poured in the 1960’s, has been uncovered from years of siltation.
The project limits are Tonne Road to the west, Landmeier Road to the north, Busse Road to the east and Devon Avenue to the south. The scope of work includes approximately 9.0 miles of ditch regrading, storm sewer and culvert removal, culvert installation, tree clearing and landscape restoration. Construction will begin in early spring.
During operations within your area, you may be requested to relocate vehicles to allow the contractor access to the drainage ditches.
