As a result of the rapid growth of the area, the City of Bowling Green has multiple capital improvement projects on-going throughout the year. These projects include sidewalk and street construction as well as building and park construction.
Kenton Street Drainage Improvements (2021-07)
Construction has begun on a drainage improvement project in the 1200 block of Kenton Street. The neighborhood was developed with ditch and shoulder drainage back in the 1970's, and with development and the ditches filling in over time, this has resulted in storm water ponding in several areas. This project creates a new drainage infrastructure utilizing the construction of a drainage basin, dry well, several storm structures, and storm pipe. The contract was awarded to Infinity Pipeline, Inc. with a completion date of March 31.
