The hump or dip in the road that was installed by MnDOT on Broadway Ave. that you see here along with the increased pipe size in the photo above will reduce flooding on Virginia Pl drastically..

Thank God.. :notworthy:

Thanks for the updated photos

Was the 38" pipe always called for in the plans or did they upsize this due to your efforts?

Is that 38" taking water away from the area or to the area?

27-inch storm sewer pipe from the East(Photo) and a 27-inch storm sewer pipe(Above Photo) from the West..

City Engineer Steven Jahnke P. E. is a Con Man by saying the storm sewer system on Virginia Pl is properly sized..

Last fall I showed the City Engineers where the flooding begins, from the large storm drain on the west side of Virginia Pl in the green field connected to the pipe coming from Broadway Ave in a catch basin..

I showed them the damage caused by that storm drain and asked them if they could engineer a way to keep the storm water in the street..

Obviously they found the bottleneck that has caused so much flooding for decades and increased the pipe size to eliminate that bottleneck..

Its all about progress.. :thumbsup:

Glad you kept after them and got some things corrected.

Hopefully they are also working on getting the lift station sizing and outlet issue addressed as well.

Keep up the good battle.
