Galley Road Stormwater Project Completion

Share this page:

Work is nearly complete on the 19th of 26 planned projects funded by $12 million in retained excess revenues that were approved by voters in 2016 to fund stormwater projects in Colorado Springs. These TABOR-funded projects are in addition to funds dedicated for stormwater through the general fund and the newly established stormwater fee.

The City of Colorado Springs and Colorado Springs Utilities partnered to make needed utility, stormwater and roadway improvements along Galley Road near Murray Road with the intent to maximize taxpayer and ratepayer dollars, and to minimize traffic impacts in the neighborhoodA geographic sub0area within the city that contains but is not limited to residential land uses. The extent of a neighborhood is variable and may be defined by tradition, organizational boundaries, the period of building and development, or subdivision patterns. Neighborhood boundaries may include such features as major streets or other physical elements..

Following the replacement of an aging water main by Springs Utilities on Galley Road, between Potter Drive and San Miguel Street, the City installed a storm drain in this project to address long standing localized flooding at the intersection of Galley and Murray roads.

The remaining seven projects are scheduled for completion by the end of 2019.
