Additional Construction Note: The Clay Street Drainage Project is taking place in the Alley and Park between Clay/Washington and 16th/17th Street. The bio-cell needs mulch, plants, and hydro-seeding. The alleyway east and west drive lanes are poured as well as the approaches and sidewalk on the North side. Cunningham will be working on the South end sidewalk and then Benton's should be coring out the sidewalk along 16th. The other bio-cell and sidewalk along W. 15th Street still remain as well.
