Lincoln Street SURGE Project
The Lincoln Street (SURGE) was an 11-block street stormwater retrofit that transects a primarily residential neighborhood on Spokane's South Hill. The project aimed to enhance the beauty of the street and improve water quality through constructed landscaped curb extensions. The curb extensions separate storm drainage from the sanitary sewer system and offer improved water quality treatment over traditional grass-lined swales. AHBL generated a Low Impact Development (LID) planting plan with hardy, drought tolerant plant varieties for the swales and consulted on the design of road and swale section details.
