43rd Street Drainage Improvements

43rd Street Drainage Improvements

Project Update 11/1/2019

  • Phase 1 and 2 are substantially complete.  There are some minor items that remain to be completed, but 43rd Street from Westport to Louise Avenue is open to traffic.
  • Removals near the levee began for Phase 3, but with the storm events and high river levels, the contractor will not be able to continue work until the river level comes back down, or until a hard freeze occurs. 
  • Contractor plans to complete the utility work for Phase 3 during the winter; however, paving of this area will need to wait until warmer weather in the Spring 2020.
