Properties along Boones Lick Road experience frequent flooding at 6th Street and between 2nd St and Riverside Dr. The flooding issues are mainly due to overland flow and undersized/sub-standard storm system. The project will examine the flooding issues with the existing watershed and evaluate the existing stormwater structures capacities. Using this data, the design consultant will design the necessary stormwater improvements to resolve the flooding issues. Other current/planned stormwater projects outside this project will need to be considered to help in designing the stormwater improvements. Creek bank stabilization further upstream or downstream of the limits described could be included with this project but should be evaluated first. This project was identified in the Comprehensive Stormwater Master Plan developed for Prop P.
Along Boone's Lick Road west of 5th Street and near 2nd and Main Street area.
City and their design consultant continue to model detention design alternatives
The City's design consultant, Horner and Shifrin, has selected an alternative that will address flooding issues that occurred along Blanchette Creek from Boone's Lick Road to Missouri River. The alternative is to construct a detention basin in Blanchette Creek north and east of Boone's Lick Road and Rose Brae Drive.
Some property will be needed from Immanuel Lutheran Church.
