Open House Planned on Storm Drain Improvements

May 13, 2008

The public is invited to an open house Monday, May 19, 2008 to learn about upcoming storm drainage construction in the area of 45th Street and Ginny Avenue and 46th and LaSalle streets. The public may attend the meeting at any time between 5 and 6:30 p.m. at Pound Middle School, 4740 S. 45th Street.

The project will increase drainage capacity and help alleviate upstream flooding at several low-lying areas. It is being funded through the storm water bond voters passed in May 2007. The first phase of construction was completed last year, and the second phase is scheduled to take place this summer.

Representatives from the City of Lincoln, HWS Consulting Group and Bookstrom Construction will be available to discuss the project and answer questions.

More information on the open house is available by calling Dawn Steffen, HWS, at 479-2200. More information on the projects is available on the City Web site at (keyword: projects).
