REDMOND, OR -- As the Redmond area continues to grow, more infrastructure is needed to accommodate stormwater runoff and create safer streets as traffic increases.
Mike Caccavano, Redmond City Engineer, says there are different needs across the area that require different solutions. "We've got, as far as City projects, we've got a couple of large infrastructure projects underway ... one water project, one waste water project, we just recently finished up a transportation project and a stormwater project."
Caccavano says it's important to increase safety and accessibility for residents. "We're hitting all our main areas, those are the areas we focus on, transportation, stormwater, water, wastewater, and we've got decent sized projects on all of them."
The Reservoir 6 and Eastside Sewer Interceptor projects are under construction, and Caccavano says the goal is to have them complete before irrigation season starts in April of next year.
The turn lane at Highway 126 and 35th street has been open for under a month, along with the stormwater project at SW 34th and Xero.
