Work Continues On $1.3 Million Carver Park Area Drainage Project

August 25, 2019

A $1.3 million drainage project in the Carver Park area of Cantonment is well underway.

The new drainage system is being installed in the Washington, Ransom, Booker, Webb, Lincoln and Louis streets areas.

The Carver Park Drainage Improvement Project consists of installing a new stormwater conveyance system with outfall to a new dry stormwater pond located east of Ransom Street. The project will include construction of shallow roadside swales, ditch bottom and curb inlets, approximately 4,900 linear feet of stormwater transmission pipes, and the relocation and installation of approximately 1,900 linear feet of water main lines.

Work started back in November and expected to be completed by the end of September. It is funded by Local Option Sales Tax dollars.
