QUAYSIDE TO LOSE ONLY PARK IN 2016
A New West citizen shared this excerpt from a communication with City Hall in 2014
"In the last 12 months the City has video inspected the storm sewer…through the Rail yard. During this inspection, it was found that the main through the rail yard had restricted flows due to debris blockage in the main. The mains were cleaned and our crews are monitoring to ensure they continue to be clear of debris and are flowing freely…During the RFP process for design services, it became apparent that the rebuilding of the outfall would require the removal of Quayside Park, and that this area would also be impacted by the Q2Q bridge construction. Engineering Services intends to coordinate the outfall replacement with the Q2Q bridge construction and park renovation work which is being scheduled for 2016. We believe this approach will ensure the most cost effective solution and minimize impact on area residents."
