Update: Work progresses on Joseph E. Boone Boulevard as contractors continue to install a water main pipe from Sunset Avenue towards Joseph E. Lowery Blvd. On the north side of Boone Boulevard, contractors continue the installation of 20 new planter boxes and a new sidewalk from Northside Drive towards Sunset Avenue.
This project will provide capacity relief to the North Avenue Combined Sewer Area and water quality improvements using the green infrastructure practice called bioretention, which is a specially landscaped area that captures runoff from an impervious surface and allows water to enter the soil. Proposed bioretention areas will span approximately 1.2 miles along Boone Blvd from Mayson Turner Road to Northside Drive that will collect stormwater runoff from along the sides of the road.
