CIP 610778 Oakwood Avenue Stormwater System Improvements – City of Columbus, Ohio
The City of Columbus contracted STONE to design stormwater system improvements for a stretch of Oakwood Avenue north of Smith Road in south Columbus. The area was not served with storm sewers, and yard flooding was common during times of heavy rain. Alternative storm water management methods and technologies were evaluated for the area as part of the City’s sustainable initiatives. Homeowner involvement was solicited via an informational meeting, and detailed construction drawings and contract documents were prepared for public bid. The project was bid in the spring, and construction completed in the fall.
As part of the design process, STONE performed subsurface investigations to locate an existing water line and worked closely with the natural gas utility to relocate gas service lines to homes in the area. STONE also provided assistance to the City during the construction process. As-built plans were completed upon the completion of construction.
