180th St SE Drainage Improvements

Description - Completed

The project reduced driveway and roadway flooding from occurring due to high flows in the ditch on the south side of 180th St SE.
  • The project upsized the conveyance system including road and driveway culverts.
  • The cross culvert at 83rd Ave SE was replaced.
  • Steep sections of the ditch have been armored with a flexible rock liner and rock check dams.
  • Driveways were brought up to current design requirements, where applicable.


Work took place during August and September of 2021 using contract construction.
