How will water be kept out of the tunnel at Mary Avenue?

The tunnel will be designed to stay as dry as possible, through a combination of stormwater management, raingardens/bioswales and pervious pavers in the shoulder area of the tunnel. Stormwater management involves grading slopes to capture storm water runoff before it gets to the tunnel and redirecting it to the raingardens or to storm drains that pipe water under Manchester Road.
