WATER MAIN & STORM DRAIN REPLACEMENT
The City of Billings, Montana W.O. 14-01 Grand Avenue Water Main and Storm Drain Replacement Project consisted of installing approximately 5,000 lineal feet of new 12-inch water main and 2,000 lineal feet of new 12-inch to 30-inch diameter storm drain in Grand Avenue between 17th and 24th Street West. The new storm drain was designed to alleviate flooding problems that occurred along Grand Avenue for storms less than the 2-year recurrence interval. Since much of the business frontage along this corridor are retail, restaurants and bars, this type of flooding was especially disastrous for walk-in business, and extended road closure for construction would have also been detrimental.
A 24-HOUR CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE KEPT THIS PROJECT MOVING QUICKLY SO THAT ADJACENT BUSINESSES WERE NOT AFFECTED BY ROAD CLOSURES.
