#PROJECTS: Kingsbury Run Preliminary Engineering (KRPE)

Rock excavation for new drop shaft at E. 117th Street.

The Kingsbury Run Preliminary Engineering Project (KRPE) Early Action project will help reduce flooding at Kinsman Road between Kingsbury Boulevard and E.117th Street. The project will also include sewer improvements on an existing structure at E.149th Street and Spear Avenue.

This project will also advance Project Clean Lake, our 25-year program to reduce Lake Erie pollution while protecting public health and water quality.

During construction, the KRPE will have some short-term impacts on the community, including lane closures and traffic pattern changes (on Kinsman Road), noise and vibration, dust, dirt, and/or mud, and temporary disruption to some property. We will maintain updates here as provided by our project managers.
