Millbourne Cobbs Creek Bank Stabilization

Skip to Updates ↓

Current Phase:


Fall 2021


Summer 2022


Project #50223 is a construction project that will take place in/along Cobbs Creek, just north of Market Street, and in adjacent grassy and wooded areas next to the walking trail.

This project is a part of the PWD’s Strategic Watershed Improvement Plan for stabilizing and improving stream corridors and this work will directly support our 25-year green stormwater management program, Green City, Clean Waters.

As part of this work, the Water Department is planning to:

  • Stabilize two separate portions of stream bank along Cobbs Creek’s main stem located just upstream of the Market Street bridge at 63rd and Market Streets.
  •  Please see page 2 for images of where the work will occur.
  • Use the existing trail and grassy areas for both construction staging and work access and will make sure to navigate around the recently built rain garden in this area.
