Cool beans, hopefully this will be only a small part of an overall project to make South Washington look less blighted (source).
Grand Forks, ND –The City of Grand Forks and the North Dakota Department of Transportation are partnering on a storm water and right of way improvement project on the SW corner of South Washington Street and 17th Avenue South.
The project will remove an old section of frontage road pavement and jersey barrier’s. In their place, a storm water Best Management Practices (BMP) filtration device (a.k.a rain garden) will be constructed in conjunction with landscaping.
In addition, a kiosk will be constructed where the benefits of rain gardens will be described along with information on designing and building rain gardens.
