Project Summary

The proposed improvements include installation of a new storm sewer system on Drendel Rd from just north of Indianapolis Ave to the dead end near the Belmont Prairie, along the Prairie Ave right-of-way east to Cross St and on Cross St from just north of the "S-Curve" to Haddow Ave. The project will also include road improvements and installation of new sidewalk. Please see project location map on this page. The new storm sewer system will intercept stormwater runoff at the areas identified and adequately convey it to the existing storm sewer system on Cross St at Haddow Ave. The proposed improvements will also provide connection points for future, private drainage improvements via the Stormwater Cost-Share Program.

 

Project Alerts

Cross St at the "s-curve" (between Indianapolis St and Haddow Ave) will remain closed to through traffic until mid-November.  North-south traffic can use Belmont Rd or Walnut Ave.  Please follow construction signage.  Updates to the road closure will be posted on this construction update page.

The contractor is expected to continue working on Saturdays to keep the project on track for November completion.
