City of Colorado Springs / Stormwater / Projects / Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) / Fountain Boulevard and Chelton RoadFountain Boulevard and Chelton Road
The intersection of Fountain Boulevard and Chelton Road historically flooded even during small rain events. Runoff that fell here or collected from surrounding areas used the streets to drain to Spring Creek. Growth over the years increased the runoff to the point where the streets couldn't convey the water fast enough.
The solution was to install an underground pipe system to carry the water to Spring Creek including extensive drainage work at the intersection. This project was completed in November 2009. For efficiency, the project was combined with a traffic safety improvement project which was funded with a Federal grant.
Stormwater Enterprise Funding: $750,000
