Construction

Given delays from record rainfall this year - we will finish the project in late fall (depending on weather). The contractor is almost finished with the main stormwater improvements at the downstream end of the project. Pineview Drive is closed to traffic and will reopen in December. A portion of Swift Drive is open to local residents and will remain closed for any other traffic for the rest of the project.
