Road project helps water quality

A completed road project in Auburndale will help reduce flooding and improve water quality thanks to a partnership between the District and the city.

Auburndale city leaders recently dedicated the PK Avenue project, which made improvements to the roadway that reduced residential flooding and helped improve water quality.

The project was co-operatively funded by the District, the Auburndale Community Redevelopment Agency, and the City of Auburndale. This $4.5 million project received $1,315,150 of its funding from the District.

Janie Hagberg, the District’s chief professional engineer, said the project will have a positive impact on the Auburndale community.
