Summary: Alum Rock
•
•
•
•
•
About 50,000 SF (1.1 acres) arterial roadway
Additional 72,000 SF (1.6 acres) residential streets
Plus portion of residential lots draining to street
3 bioretention facilities totaling about 5230 SF
Need for traffic calming and pedestrian access
Some preliminary insights
• This is a craft
• Potential sites are easy to find
– But are not available in all areas
• Subtle differences in elevation determine
feasibility and cost
• Creating changes to surface drainage will be a
key part of many projects
– Overlays
– Removing catch basins
– Using trench drains
