This project was centered around the reconstruction of Cheyenne Street, an entrance to the main parking areas for Cheney Stadium, home of the AAA Tacoma Rainers, as well as retrofits to the parking lot itself. The City of Tacoma took the opportunity to improve multimodal access, reduce pollutant loading from stormwater, and increase tree canopy. Go Rainiers!
A major goal of the project was to improve stormwater runoff from the street and parking lot areas, which drains to the Flett Creek Watershed and Snake Lake, through the use of rain gardens and permeable pavement. The use of LID techniques allowed stormwater mitigation at approximately half the cost of traditional methods. In addition, the project sought to improve facilities for cyclists and pedestrians, provide energy efficient operations, and increase vegetated areas. Sustainable project feature included:
