Foster Lane Drainage Improvements


  • Completion Date: 2007
  • Construction Cost: $34,000

Runoff from the north end of Foster Lane discharged to an adjacent property. The roadside ditches on Foster lane had been filled in or culverts installed by property owners with the result that surface drainage from the right-of-way and adjacent properties was not able to enter the drainage system and had caused a drainage problem for the property at the north end of the road. Jefferson County paid for the project that installed a piped drainage system to the natural point of discharge north of Foster Lane.
