SouthEast Connector Project: February 2017 Flyover Video

Dear Stakeholder:

The project team has created the February 2017 flyover video. Each video begins at the southern end of the project (Segment 1) at the current intersection of South Meadows Parkway and Veterans Parkway and concludes at the northern end of the project at Clean Water Way (Segment 4).

Though there is no noticeable construction progress since December due to several significant storms, the video does showcase how the project is designed to hold and drain flood waters while maintaining road access. Once construction is completed, the roadway will be passable in a 117-year flood event such as the region experienced in 1997.

Allowing water to expand over the flood plain helps prevent flooding in other parts of the community and is one example of how the project is protective of the community. A section of Mira Loma Drive east of its intersection with the new roadway will be elevated above the 117-year flood elevation, providing access from the SouthEast Connector to the Hidden Valley area during large flood events. The project has already proven how it will enhance emergency vehicle access to Hidden Valley, the Truckee Meadows Water Reclamation Facility, and areas east of Steamboat Creek during Truckee River and Steamboat Creek flood events.
