Project Summary

The proposed improvements include installation of a new storm sewer system that will provide the recommended level of service on Indianapolis Avenue from Drendel Road to Cross Street. The new storm sewer system on Indianapolis Avenue will connect to the recently completed Drendel Road storm sewer system, and will also facilitate future drainage improvements on Cross Street south of Ogden Ave. Indanapolis Avenue will be reconstructed and widened.

The proposed improvements also include reconstruction and reconfiguration of the Cross Street “s-curve” to improve pavement width and turning radii, installation of new sidewalk on Cross Street from Ogden Avenue to and through the Cross Street “s-curve”, and resurfacing of Drendel Road from Ogden Avenue to Indianapolis Avenue and Cross Street from Ogden Avenue to the Cross Street “s-curve.”
