Work Nearly Complete On $1.3 Million Carver Park Area Drainage Project

November 5, 2019

Work is approaching completion on a $1.3 million drainage project in the Carver Park area of Cantonment.

The new drainage system is was installed in the Washington, Ransom, Booker, Webb, Lincoln and Louis streets areas, and the project is reported to be 98% complete.

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 includes 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 2018 and is expected to be completed by November 18. It was funded by Local Option Sales Tax dollars.

    I would like to thank everyone that was involved in this project. It was well overdue. Now if we can get some speed bumpers to try and slow the cars and motorcycles down would be an added plus.

    Great job! Now what is the plan for widening 297A like the rest of the road, just like it is all the way to Pine Forest. Also, making a smoother Railroad track crossover. In addition, a right turn lane at Muscogee Road is very much needed. This would allow traffic not to be backed up there at Muskogee and 297A.
