Public Infrastructure Projects
Sidewalks and ADA RampsCity staff surveyed the recovery area and it was determined that there are 116,193 feet of sidewalks that were severely damaged and in need of immediate replacement. Using this opportunity to upgrade sidewalks across the recovery area, the City is replacing or installing 812,467 feet of sidewalks and replacing or installing 1,664 ADA ramps dramatically improving neighborhood and commercial areas.
Sanitary Sewers and Manhole Repairs
The tornado and ensuing heavy equipment caused significant damage to manholes and sanitary sewers across the tornado recovery area. As a result, the City is repairing or replacing 1700 manhole covers and 1000s of feet of sewer lines.
Storm Sewer Replacement and Repair
The tornado and ensuing heavy equipment caused significant damage to the manhole and storm sewers across the tornado recovery area. In addition, storm debris resulted in blocked drains and significant water damage caused erosion and collapse of areas. Thirty-four major projects identified consist of priority drainage problems and are largely made up of needed residential neighborhood drainage improvements with a smaller number of improvements at street intersections and commercial areas.
