Blueprint Miller Kelton

Miller Kelton, also known as Driving Park, has been identified as a Blueprint priority area due to a significant number of basement backup incidences and the sanitary sewer overflow that discharges into Alum Creek near the Alum Creek Multi-Use Trail. Though a portion of this area is served by a separate, combined sewer system, over 3 acres of storm water runoff drain to the sanitary sewer system, creating additional capacity issues and leading to basement backups.

Current Projects

Miller Kelton is bounded by Mooberry and E. Main St. to the north, S. Nelson Rd. to the east, E. Livingston Avenue to the south and S. 18th St. to the west.

Miller-Kelton is divided into two project areas:

Newton-Bedford: S. 18th St. to Miller Ave., between Mooberry and E. Livingston Ave.

Kelton-Fairwood: Miller Ave. to S. Nelson Rd., between E. Main St. and E. Livingston Ave.

Miller-Kelton Project Schedule

Phase 1

Surveying: 2016-2018

Surveyors are in the neighborhood to document water flow patterns, topography, existing utilities, and other residential infrastructure, such as downspouts.

Phase 2

Green Infrastructure Design: 2018-2020

The engineering team identifies the types and locations of green infrastructure that will meet the needs of the neighborhood. During the design phase, we seek resident feedback through surveys, public meetings, and field visits.

Phase 3

Shovels in the Ground: 2021-2023

Construction of green infrastructure involves work in the public right-of-way and street. All neighborhood residents will be notified of anticipated impacts, and Blueprint will send out weekly construction updates to keep everyone informed of the schedule and activities.

Green Infrastructure Construction: 2021

Rain gardens and porous pavement sites are installed. During this time other city infrastructure work may occur, such as waterline upgrades or sidewalk installations.

Lateral Lining and Roofwater Redirection: 2023

Individual homes are assessed for lateral lining and roofwater redirection. These home improvements prevent stormwater from entering the sanitary sewer lines by getting that water away from your home and out to the street, so it can drain to the storm sewer system
