A new drainage system is being constructed along northbound SR-55 adjacent to the Kenyon Pointe and El Paseo properties. Crews are currently excavating and constructing a temporary shoring system to support the slope while the new drainage system is being built. There is an existing drainage system that will be removed once the new one is in place.
During excavation, crews encountered buried concrete. Contractors are removing as much concrete as possible while some may have to remain in place. The concrete removal and shoring installation are expected to be completed by the end of the year.
