Elk Mountain Construction will begin working to address Monterey’s flooding problem within the next 45 days.
Town officials said the $124,403 project will begin on or before March 2. Grant writer Dawn Kupferer said that timeline allows the supplier to build storm drain boxes for the project.
Scope of project involves installing new drain basins near the police department property and piping under the town’s rail trail. Crews will also look at cleaning out existing piping running along Highway 62 and Commercial Avenue.
The contract requires crews to have the work completed by July 30. The work represents the first of several phases to address the flooding problem that has affected roads, businesses, and homes for several years.
