Grading work and regional drainage improvements are scheduled to begin late this year on the Town properties located adjacent to Pine Drive north of Mainstreet. This project will require daytime closures of Pine Drive for approximately two weeks.
The improvements will include the installation of an underground storm sewer through the property west of Pine Drive, allowing the existing drainage ditch to be filled. A stormwater detention pond will be installed on the property east of Pine Drive to help reduce flows through the site. The earth displaced by this pond will be used to level the property west of Pine Drive, eliminating the need to import material to this site and reducing future project costs.
Pine Drive will be closed during non-peak hours to allow the hauling of this material across the roadway. The daytime closures are anticipated to last no longer than two weeks, and Pine Drive will be open to two-way traffic outside of closure hours during this work. More information on the exact dates of this closure will be provided as the work advances. The project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2015.
An open house to discuss the project will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 12 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the PACE Center. For more information, please call the Public Works Department at 303.840.9546
