Body

WHEREAS, on August 20, 2018 the Westside of the City of Madison experienced a very significant rain event with rainfall amounts ranging from 5 to 10 inches which fell in approximately 6 hours; and

 

WHEREAS, this rain event resulted in significant flash flooding damages to portions of the City including the McKenna Boulevard area; and

 

WHEREAS, City Engineering has been working on flood solutions to the McKenna Boulevard drainage problem with the neighborhood since approximately July of 2016 and;

 

WHEREAS, City Engineering has worked with the neighborhood to arrive at Phase 1 of the flood relief public works improvement project represented and bid under Contract 9411; and

 

WHEREAS, in order to provide the full benefits of the flood relief project, City Engineering will implement McKenna Boulevard Flood Mitigation Phase 2 in 2020, under Contract 8536; and

 

WHEREAS, City Engineering received six (6) competitive bids for construction of the design solution agreed to with the neighborhood; and

 

WHEREAS, a significant amount of the costs to construct this improvement involve the reconstruction of Struck Street and Schroeder Road to lower the overflow elevation to safely pass flows associated with large rain events.

 

WHEREAS, unused portions of the Monroe Street project funds will help pay for street related work that the Citywide Flood Mitigation Program would have otherwise needed to cover, and

 

WHEREAS, there are many flood mitigation related projects in the future that can benefit from the funds that would have otherwise been spent on the McKenna Boulevard Flood Mitigation Phase 2 project.
