South Prairie Lee Interceptor Sewer Upgrades

Project Description:
This project is one of six projects funded by the 2007 1/2 cent sales tax renewal. This project will reconstruct the roadway as a 3-lane facility with turn lanes. The existing one-lane RR tunnel will be removed, and widened to support two-way traffic. A pedestrian bridge will be put in it's place.

Project Rationale:  The city enter into a development agreement with a development at the top of the South Prairie Lee Drainage Basin. This developer was required to provide a sanitary sewer capacity study which identified improvements needed to convey their flow. The cost of these improvements was identified and the money escrowed so that it could be used to make these and other improvements in the basin by the City.
