    Eastside Sewer Improvements Program 27
    Reconstruction (Various Streets near Creston Business District)
    Complete 2016


    ​Project Summary
    This project separated 53 acres that previously had a combined sewer into dedicated sanitary and storm sewers. Work also included installing a new water main, replacing curb, gutter, pavement and upgrading drive approaches, upgrading sidewalks and ramps to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Green infrastructure, including street trees, rain gardens, and porous pavement were added to retain and soak stormwater into the ground to filter pollutants and reduce runoff entering natural bodies of water and bulb-outs were created at intersections to provide room for rain gardens, better define parking spaces, and lessen the street crossing distance for people walking.
