Detours will be clearly marked (see below). The City is asking drivers to please use caution when traveling in this area.

Reduce flooding: The project area was selected as a priority in the City’s Stormwater Master Plan which was created in 2013 and serves to decrease the severe flooding that has frequently occurred along Anchors Street NW.
