Project Highlight of the Week

Collins Avenue @ Benning Street Pipe Replacement

This project includes interception of the 30 inch pipe carrying a live stream and crossing Collins Avenue @ Baxter Street then carrying the live stream in a new storm pipe system.

The Streets & Drainage work teams have completed installing the new stormwater pipes and structures, and the live stream is running through the new system.  They have begun curb & gutter installation, and driveway and roadway construction.  To date, crews have installed: 870 feet of stormwater pipe, 3 manholes, 2 drop inlets, 1 flared end section, and a 80' x 50' concrete energy dissipater.  Completion is expected for Fall 2017.
