History

The Platt Park neighborhood, in Denver, was prone to flooding during large storm events without an adequate storm water conveyance system in place.  The City and County of Denver partnered with BT Construction, Inc. to construct ~4000 LF of 54-60 inch diameter pipe and multiple catch basins to capture and convey stormwater.

Challenges

The neighborhood streets are narrow and heavily populated making the installation of the large diameter RCP pipe more complex.  Several heavy storm events during construction punctuated the need for the improved system, along with testing our crews resolve.

Solutions

Thorough traffic control planning and implementation, to assure a productive and safe work zone, was a primary focus of our project team.  Proactive and on-going communication with the residents and business owners created a cooperative environment for successful staging and the steady progression of the work schedule.
