The Fourth Avenue North Floodwall phase of the project is located between just west of Broadway and just east of Third Street NE. This phase features floodwalls, earthen levees, a large pump station and other key features.
The project recently reached the 30% design milestone in October 2015, and held a public meeting in early November with those in the impacted neighborhood. The project has approximately 2,250 feet of floodwalls, earthen levees on both sides of where the Broadway Bridge connects on the north side of the river, and at least one removable closure structure.
The Fourth Avenue Floodwall phase (Phase 1) is expected to finish engineering design by the end of 2016, with construction starting in 2017. Construction would finish in two to three seasons.
