The 22nd Street/Kaufmann Avenue Storm Sewer Improvements Project (White Street to Kleine Street) is one phase of the Bee Branch Watershed Flood Mitigation Project. The project involves the replacement of the existing storm sewer with a 10’ x 6’ box culvert storm sewer and additional storm drains (intakes) along 22nd Street/Kaufmann Avenue from White Street to Kleine Street. Improvements will continue up Kaufmann Avenue to Kane Street in a future phase. This work will require the relocation and reconstruction of existing underground utilities to provide the necessary space for the larger storm sewer. It will also require the complete removal and subsequent reconstruction of the street.

The improvements will be constructed in multiple traffic control phases to accommodate residents and businesses. Phase I involves the construction of improvements on Central Avenue and 22nd Street intersection. Phase 1A involves construction of improvements on 22nd street from White Street to Central Avenue. Phase II improvements include construction on Kaufmann Avenue with the closure of the Francis Street and Division Street intersections. Phase III improvements include construction of improvements on Kaufmann Avenue with the closure of Valeria Street and North Main intersections. The final phase is the construction of improvements on Kaufmann Avenue with the closure of the Kleine Street intersection.

Improvements include the installation of approximately 1200 linear feet of 10-foot by 6-foot concrete box culvert (either cast-in place or precast) with cast in place connections on both the west and east ends of the project. The project also includes local storm sewer and intakes, roadway reconstruction with HMA pavement, roadway reconstruction with PCC pavement, PCC driveway, sidewalk, and curb ramp reconstruction, PCC wall, limestone wall, railing, and step construction, water main replacement, sanitary sewer replacement, temporary storm water management, dewatering, mobilization, electrical conduits, street lights, fiber vaults, fiber optic cable, traffic signal replacement, miscellaneous restoration, erosion control, and traffic control.
