In 2015, the City undertook a study of the drainage runoff associated with the Old Ranch Road 12 Bike / Pedestrian and Widening project. It was determined that there will be a negligible increase in runoff associated with the road widening. Since a portion of the project drains to Coers Drive, the current drainage in this area was investigated.
The study showed that the two drainage crossings on Coers could be improved if replaced with larger pipes and the existing ditch could be enhanced to help alleviate some drainage problems in the area.
The project will provide storm drain improvements, install 943 linear feet of box culverts, add a water quality feature, replace 1,170 feet of wastewater main and 1,050 feet of water main on Coers Drive, from Old Ranch Road 12 to Owens Street. The scope also includes the design of approximately 1,050 feet of 5 foot sidewalks.
