I attended a briefing recently in which, at long last, a new drainage system will be constructed from MacArthur to the end of the walking street, just pass the Carousel Club. The construction will be on the left side of the street starting at the Genesis club, to Kokomo's, further to the Carousel and end at the entrance of the walking street. It will be a bit of a mess as the sidewalks will be removed and replaced and the businesses along the strip will be responsible for personal expenses expended in finishing off the new sidewalks. This is phase one, the other side will experience the same procedure at a later date. We were told that construction should have started already so I expect to see a start by the beginning of March, if not earlier. We were told it will be fast tracked so that the disruption to vehicle and foot traffic is short lived.
Oops, I forgot to mention there will be 14 manholes installed and businesses will not be allowed to extend their drainage systems to the actual pipes but will have to connect with the manholes.
