American Public Works Association Project of the Year

27th Street Storm Drain project

Iron Woman is extremely proud to announce that our 27th Street Storm Interceptor project received the American Public Works Association’s Public Works Project of the Year in the Environment, $5 million to $25 million category for 2023! The project improved public safety by relieving drainage and flooding issues in the Curtis Park and Five Points neighborhoods. Stormwater runoff in this rapidly developing area drained to the South Platte River at the over-utilized 36th Street Outfall, which often led to flooding during storms. The project included approximately 5,900 linear feet of large storm pipe ranging in size from 78 inches to 96 inches in diameter located in 27th Street between Blake Street and Welton Street, and in Washington Street between 27th Street and 20th Avenue.

Iron Woman is recognized alongside our client, The City and County of Denver, and primary design consultant, Merrick & Company. Congratulations to all!
