LESLIE ROAD STORM AND WATER SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS
The Leslie Road Improvements Project will combine two efforts identified in the City’s Capital Improvement Plan, namely stormwater and water system improvements. The Leslie Road improvements will begin construction in Spring 2019.
This project will correct a conveyance system deficiency that contributes to flooding in the area of Leslie Road and Gage Boulevard.
The project will replace an existing pipeline that has been determined to be undersized.
Water System Improvements
The Water System Plan identified this area as a system deficiency that affects overall operations of the water system in south Richland. Converting customers to a higher pressure zone and adding / changing the piping configuration on Leslie between Hillview and Sheridan will improve overall system (especially in south Richland) reliability. This project adds approximately 600 LF of water main in Broadmoor, and 1500 LF of water main in Leslie Road. Seventy-two residential water services customers will be switched from the Tapteal 1 pressure zone to the Tapteal 2 pressure zone with this project.
April through August 2019. The contract for this effort has been awarded to C&E Trenching.
August 2019 -
Leslie Road (Gage to Hillview), Construction will continue with various limited lane closures and possible detours. Expect traffic delays along this segment of Leslie.
