The Ohio Street CSO Abatement Pilot Project was a partnership effort to beautify a significant transportation corridor into Indiana’s capital. Incorporating 2650 square feet of pervious concrete sidewalk, 900 feet of pervious concrete curb and gutter, and 750 square feet of rain garden, the project improved drainage and handicap accessibility. The contractor hand-formed pervious concrete curbs to get the desired form and compression for optimal void space and compressive strength. This project helps to manage runoff from 60,000 square feet of impervious surface and will remove more than 1.35 million gallons of stormwater from the combined sewer overflow in an area that lacked any existing stormwater infrastructure. It also creates a safer corridor for pedestrians.
