5th Ave and Newport Street Storm Sewer

The Crestmoor East neighborhood is receiving an upgrade to the existing storm sewer system to near the 5th and Newport intersection.


Project Summary
The new storm system starts just north of 6th Avenue in Niagara St, runs west in 6th Avenue to Magnolia St, turns and heads south in Magnolia to 5th Avenue, turns again and heads east in 5th Avenue, terminating in the area of 5th & Newport.

When complete, the project will add one-quarter mile of 72-inch diameter pipe and multiple new catch basins to help capture and convey the stormwater.  The total cost of the new system is approximately $1.3 million dollars.

Project Impact
In order to accomplish the work, sections of 6th Avenue will require closures to safely and effectively install the storm sewer system.   Closures will also be required of residential streets however, local access will be maintained.
