Beginning in January 2016, Fleming Excavating will be relocating and improving a portion of the Kramer Ditch in the Concordia Gardens neighborhood.

The project involves relocating a portion of the ditch channel to the north at 2206 Parkland Drive and adding a high overflow channel along the rear yard of 2126 Parkland Drive.  The newly constructed portion of the channel and the existing channel will be reinforced by adding structures called gabion baskets to hold the bank in place.
