Magnolia Drainage Project

Project Status



Crews are currently completing street and drainage improvements on Hinkle Drive from US 380 to Headlee Street.

Project Background

The Magnolia Drainage Project is a lot more than just drainage. While the project includes constructing a new storm drain along Windsor and Hinkle Drives to intercept runoff along the route, crews will also be removing and replacing the road surfaces on Hinkle Drive (University to Windsor) and Windsor Drive (Hinkle to Elm). Construction is expected to begin in March 2019.

Project Updates

June 12: Crews recently began street and drainage improvements on Hinkle Drive from US 380 to Headlee Street. During this phase of construction, Hinkle Street is closed from Amherst Drive to Headlee to allow crews to safely complete the improvements. Detours are in place for Parkside Drive and W Windsor Drive. Motorists are encouraged to refer to the detour map located under project information for alternate routes during the temporary closure.
