The East 16th Avenue Storm Interceptor project area is located in Montclair Basin (Basin 4500-03) of the City and County of Denver Storm Drainage Master Plan. There are existing storm sewers in East 16th Avenue and Batavia Place which are currently undersized to convey the stormwater resulting in frequent and significant flooding of the neighborhood area. The goal of this project is to work with hydrology developed by the Outfall Systems Plan (OSP) team to size, design, and construct a new storm main line to safely transport the flows from existing systems in Colfax Avenue and East 16th Avenue towards City Park, while picking up the local flows along the way.
A phased construction approach is anticipated for this project. Construction will begin with Phase I, starting at the downstream end near N. Jackson Street and East 17th Avenue with a connection to an existing storm outfall into City Park pond.
This project is currently in the design phase, which is expected to continue through final plan development in mid 2020. Construction dates would be determined following the final design.
