McKinnie / Hessen Cassel Drainage Improvements


The McKinnie & Hessen Cassel drainage improvements will include providing a drainage system on the south side of McKinnie Avenue between Hessen Cassel Road and Wayne Trace to help combat stormwater flooding on residential properties.

What to expect during construction:

Storm castings such as swales and inlets will be placed in areas that will best address ponding and flooding.

New storm drains will be placed near each resident’s front yard, and will then connect to a concrete storm pipe placed along McKinnie Avenue. These new stormwater structures will help alleviate flooding and provide proper drainage of storm water.

As pipes are laid under driveways, there will be temporary private driveway restrictions. Contractors will notify homeowners before temporarily restricting the use of resident driveways. Driveway restrictions should last no more than a few hours.
