The Walnut Street Alley was originally scheduled for an asphalt grind and resurface for 2020. During preliminary design engineering, it was discovered that the existing alley pavement is 50%-60% porous, allowing storm water to seep into the ground. If resurfaced, the pavement would become completely impervious and storm water would be forced to flow west, in the direction of the the existing grade. Currently, drainage to the sewer system at this location is not sufficient to handle that storm water and it would be forced onto private property. Unfortunately, asphalt grind and resurface projects do not allow for major grade changes to existing roadways and larger improvements to the sewer system.
Staff has removed the project from the 2020 schedule and will begin reviewing options for the near future. The project will require the reconstruction of the pavement, upgrade to the sewer system and proper grade changes to direct storm water.
