RECENT CITY NEWS
Over the next several years the City of Birmingham will invest in the City's infrastructure by addressing the needs in the downtown Central Business District with water system, sewer system and streetscape upgrades. This year efforts will focus on the Central Business District into larger areas involving both Old Woodward and Maple. These areas have some of the oldest water and sewer lines in the City, as well as a streetscape that is on a different grade than the road. Much of this current infrastructure was installed in the 1940s and has exceeded its useful life. Learn about the project scope and design at www.bhamgov.org/downtowninfrastructure. To receive regular updates on the project, sign up for the "Old Woodward Reconstruction General Information" group at www.bit.ly/bhamnews.
