Executive Summary:

Approval is requested for a construction contract for the Drumm and Crane Stormwater Improvements Project (No. 70131504). The project will install new storm sewer mains, inlets underdrain system for the site to improve runoff and stormwater conveyance throughout the project site, helping to eliminate continual water accumulation in the street gutter and yard flooding within the project limits.

Existing drainage infrastructure in the vicinity of the intersection 38th Street and Crane Street is not adequate for stormwater and groundwater to be adequately conveyed from the project site, resulting in standing water along Drumm Avenue down to 38th Street.  A design to install a complete drainage system, including stormwater inlets, pipes, and an underdrain was completed, representing the Drumm and Crane Stormwater Improvements Project.  This project includes installation of 429 linear feet of various sized storm sewer mains, 1,290 linear feet of underdrain, 10 stormwater structures, 1,599 linear feet of curb replacement, and all appurtenant work for the completion of the project.
