Why is this project being done?
Several neighborhoods across the City of Ann Arbor have gravel roads that are experiencing drainage issues and localized flooding. The City of Ann Arbor will be conducting a series of drainage studies across the city to study these issues and evaluate possible opportunities. In early 2024, city staff will be hosting listening sessions and working meetings with residents in specific areas, both in-person and virtual, with the hopes that a wide range of residents will have the opportunity to learn more, share their experiences and get involved.
The first phase of the Four-Year Study (Valley Drive/ Evergreen Subdivision) started in January of 2024.
Additional Study Areas:
- 2025: Kimberly, Alexandra, Swift Run Area
- 2026: North and South Geddes Area, Westover/Park Lake Area
- 2027: Chalmers, Elmwood, Other Areas
