Fosberg Road Drainage Improvements
Fosberg Road is a mostly uncurbed street where, during periods of heavy rain, the section south of Glacier Lily Street experiences severe shoulder erosion and the flooding of private properties. This project will construct the necessary infrastructure to capture the runoff and manage it within the City's stormwater system. The project, to be constructed between Carmen Drive and Glacier Lily Street, is expected to extend the existing curb up the westerly side of the road to the area of Glacier Lily Street. The project will also include new storm pipe and inlets along the lower segment of Fosberg Road. Additionally, the existing storm inlets at Glacier Lily will be replaced with new inlets that are more efficient at capturing the runoff that flows out of the neighborhood to the east.
This past summer (2021), several private utility companies relocated their underground facilities in advance of the storm work. The contract for the storm construction has been awarded and the contractor is set to begin the pipe and curb work in mid-October. Construction will continue through the winter and is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2022. Following the completion of the storm and curb improvements, during the summer of 2022, the City pavement program will repave the length of Fosberg from Carmen Drive to Melrose Street.
Construction Phase is well underway! Please follow construction signs and watch out for flaggers, crews, equipment and steel sheet in the roadway.
