Stormwater Drainage Improvement Projects to Begin – South Center Ave. and East Broadway Blvd. – Beginning Tuesday, May 28, 2024

The City of Sedalia developed a Stormwater Master Plan, which outlined and prioritized stormwater drainage improvement projects based on key criteria that included, but was not limited to, home and street flooding. Since the completion of the Master Plan in 2013, the City has completed several drainage improvement projects throughout the City. In June 2022, the City applied for grant funding through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to help further fund more of these improvements’ projects. The City was fortunate to receive funding which will allow for the completion of eight more of the areas identified in the Master Plan as needing improvements.

Beginning on Tuesday, May 28, 2024, the contractor, Orr Wyatt Streetscapes, will begin the first of these eight projects in the area of South Center Ave. and East Broadway Blvd. The project is expected to be completed in 60 days. Heavy equipment and workers will be present in the roadway during this period. Inclement weather or equipment breakdowns could delay completion. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause as the City continues to make improvements to the stormwater drainage infrastructure.
