Gerald, Margaret and Madison Streets in the Village of Osceola were originally constructed with a rural cross section, flat grades and no ditches. The flat grades and lack of proper ditches allowed ponding and localized flooding during rainfalls and snow melt, accelerating pavement deterioration. An urban street section with concrete curb and gutter and a storm sewer system was the obvious solution to eliminate the ponding water and localized flooding. In addition, Local Road Improvement Program (LRIP) funding for Madison Street required the evaluation of Trans 75 (Complete Streets). To comply with Complete Streets, concrete sidewalk and ADA compliant pedestrian ramps were added along the west side of Madison Street.
