Cole Creek Improvements at Hillside Drive - OPW 51146


This project will involve the removal of the existing Hillside Drive culvert to improve stream capacity and reduce flood risk to upstream properties and public rights-of-way.  Improvements to the stream will include a minor realignment of the creek along with bank stabilization measures that together will help to mitigate unsafe conditions caused by steep, eroding banks and help to protect private properties and local infrastructure.
The City’s preferred alternative for the improvements would be to not replace the existing culvert and to remove the associated section of Hillside Drive and connection to Cole Creek Drive.  The vehicular crossing would then be replaced by a pedestrian bridge that crosses the creek.
