The City & County of Denver is planning stormwater pipe and infrastructure improvements beginning at Lollipop Lake in Garland Park and the Cherry Creek waterway and ending at E. Tennessee Avenue and S. Oneida Street. This goal of this project is to decrease property damage due to local flooding; increase pedestrian and driver safety during storm events; and improve water quality for stormwater runoff that will be going into Lollipop Lake and Cherry Creek.
As of Fall 2019, the 60% design phase is complete. Following the completion of a final design, the new storm drain infrastructure will be built in multiple phases beginning at the intersection of E. Mississippi Avenue and S. Monaco Street Parkway. When fully operational, the new storm drain pipe will run from the “downstream” end of Lollipop Lake to the “upstream” end at E. Tennessee Avenue and S. Oneida Street.
60 percent design was completed in Fall 2019.
