Project Improvements

 

 

North Street Cross Section 

North Street will collect, store and infiltrate stormwater runoff below the pavement surface.  The placement of the underground storage cells are governed by the location of utilities, existing structures and tree roots.  The specific placement of the underground storage ensures the existing mature trees will not be damaged and saves cost by avoiding relocation of utilities.  This highly specialized design allows for the majority of stormwater runoff to be intercepted and removed from the combined sewer system.

 

 

 

Proposed Angled Parking near St. Boniface Catholic Church

The reconstruction of North Street provides an opportunity to implement angled parking within the right-of-way for the increase of traffic near St. Boniface Catholic Church.

 

 

 

 

Proposed Downspout Disconnection near St. Boniface Catholic Church

St. Boniface Catholic Church is a community landmark. It also has a large roof surface area.  Implementing a water quality element near the current downspouts allows the water quality elements to remove runoff from the combined sewer system.
