COLLEGE STREET LANE CLOSURE WEEK OF NOV.3
Construction work on the Chambers Lake Stormwater Treatment Facility is underway. Beginning the week of November 3, a single southbound lane on College Street will be closed in the vicinity of 29th Avenue SE between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
The lane closure will facilitate the hauling of excavated soil from the construction site and is expected to take three to five days to complete. Work will take place on weekdays only. Minor delays are expected and alternate routes are advised. The Chambers Lake Stormwater Treatment Facility site, located at 2750 Lakeview Drive SE, will treat stormwater flows from College Street and surrounding neighborhoods.
The facility will improve the water quality of Little Chambers Lake, as well as provide the opportunity to enhance its shoreline by providing habitat, open space, and new wetland-specific plantings. A paved pedestrian trail will also be provided through the city-owned 7-acre site. Paving of the pedestrian trail will be weather-dependent and is anticipated to occur in early spring 2015.
