This purpose of the project is to improve stormwater drainage in the neighborhood of Benton Avenue near Mel Wetter Parkway down Barthel Avenue to Third Street, then east to the Missouri River outfall. This project also includes Transit Avenue from North Fifth Street down to Main Street. The floodgate and outfall to the Missouri River will be replaced to serve these two storm sewer improvements. Homes in this neighborhood are subject to flooding due to undersized or substandard storm sewers.
