Project work began in the fall of 2014 and is a partnership
with the Engineering Department to improve traffic speeds, pedestrian safety,
water quality and the interface between Neale Avenue, Herron Park, and Prockter
Open Space. Stormwater conveyance improvements will significantly
improve the water quality prior to entering the Roaring Fork River
through the construction of stormwater wetlands, similar in character to the
completed Jennie Adair Storm water wetlands. Design and planning efforts for
the Prockter Open Space has been completed, with site construction currently underway planned to be completed October 2016. The restoration, implementation of wetland and native plants will take place Spring 2017 as weather permits.
