Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Street Evaluation

October 2017 – April 2018

Updates:

  • Diversified Infrastructure Services, Inc. (DIS) completed scanning roads required by contract
  • Evaluating data on road structure before submitting report to City
  • Prioritizing and developing types of repairs needed

Drainage Improvements
54th Terrace & Switzer Road

November – December 2017
The  subdivision was  developed in phases without any drainage improvement on the  street. The properties receive drainage water from the development from the north. Drainage meanders through multiple properties until it is captured in a private drainage improvement that outlets to City storm system on 55th Street. Streets and some of the lower lying properties may experience flooding.

Updates:

  • Pre-construction meeting on Nov. 1
  • Construction scheduled to begin Nov. 27
  • 35 calendar days to complete the project

Owen Heights (CMP Repair) 

September 2017 – March 2018
An aging storm drain system runs from Eby Street/47th  Street to Antioch Road. Many  sections  of  the  corrugated metal pipes (CMP)  are  beyond  their  design  lives  and structural integrity of the pipes is compromised.  A portion of 60” CMP collapsed and repaired by Public Works in Spring 2010.  Another section has failed and separated from the system on 48th Street. The project will  eliminate potential risk for sink holes and extend the system’s life by about 50 years.

Updates:

  • On Nov. 1, the contractor began removing existing Corrugated Metal Pipe and placing new Reinforced Concrete Pipe at Antioch Rd.
  • Project is currently in Winter shutdown.
  • Remaining items of work is to replace existing storm drain boxes on 48th St, 47th Ter, Eby St, and 47th St. Also, lining of the existing CMP storm Drain.
