As a part of the Hillcrest Village development, at 12817 Kelly Ave, an existing storm sewer pipe was removed to allow for the construction of the new building.

At this time, a connection was discovered between the pipe that was removed and the downtown storm sewer system.

As a result, the new storm sewer extension is needed along Wharton Street to reconnect the downtown storm sewer system.
