Work to rebuild and improve stormwater drainage bordering the site of the Citadel Mall in Colorado Springs is expected to begin later this spring.
The City of Colorado Springs has issued a Request for Proposals for what is called the “Citadel Mall Improvements” project at Chelton and Santa Rosa roads.
The $1 million project will see the design and building of stormwater capture and conveyance improvements designed to prevent flooding in the surrounding vicinity.
Those improvements will include the installation of multiple curb inlets, new storm drain pipes, and concrete cross pans.
The work area is just to the west of the parking lot of the Citadel Mall, which was built in 1972. To the other side of the project area is a residential neighborhood.
The project, centered on improving a current insufficient storm water drainage capacity, was several years ago identified as one of list of priority infrastructure projects by the city’s Stormwater Advisory Committee.
Submission deadline for the RFP is January 21.
