Photo of street flooding at Gallup Street and Peakview AvenueConstruction is set to begin on the roadway culvert on Little's Creek at the Gallup Street and Peakview Avenue intersection in mid-February.

To construct this project as economically as possible, the intersection will be closed to through traffic for approximately three months, with a detour for vehicles and pedestrians. Through traffic will be detoured around the work area at major streets including Elati Street, Ridge Road, Windermere Street, and Caley Avenue. Access to residences near the construction site will be maintained.

This project will replace the small existing culverts with three 4-ft by 8-ft box culverts, and improve drainage pipes to reduce frequency of roadway and adjacent property flooding. All other roadways crossing Littles Creek already had culverts upgraded to address this same flooding issue.

This project has been planned and designed over a number of years. It includes relocation of a number of water mains and other utilities, which dictates the construction schedule. This project must start in March to ensure the water lines are operational in May. 

For questions about the project, view the construction plans, call 303-795-3836 or email the project manager.
