Hume Avenue Stormdrain Bypass project
The Hume Avenue Stormdrain Bypass project will provide flood mitigation for residential homes fronting Hume Ave. and E. Raymond Ave. The main work is to install an alternate storm sewer along Hume Avenue to bypass the existing pipe in the backyards of the townhomes on the south side of Hume Avenue. During design development, the City identified a need for new storm sewers and storm inlets along E. Raymond Ave. to capture flood waters earlier, before they can collect in low-lying areas.
Due to the significant amount of disturbance required to install these improvements, several additional capital improvements will be delivered with this project: The sanitary sewer on E. Raymond will be upgraded from an 8" dia. pipe to a 12" dia. pipe; Hume Ave. will be restored to achieve a 6" curb height; Hume Ave. will be re-surfaced to address existing patches and potholes within and adjacent to the project area; a check valve will be installed under the parking lot of Truist Bank at 2809 Mt. Vernon Ave.
