West & Mitchell Drainage Corrections

Over the winter break, the University started the West and Mitchell  Street intersection drainage correction project. Flooding in this intersection, during even a minor rain event, has been an ongoing problem for years. With the installation of new inlets and drainage lines this intersection shouldn’t flood in the future under normal conditions.

Phase I of the project consisted of getting the new line across West Street, Student Lot 47 and Mitchell Street. It will be completed before classes start to prevent any traffic flow problems.

Phase II of the project will start January 23rd. It will consist of running the line from Mitchell to Johnson Creek.
