As part of the Aksarben Village development, a storm sewer and sanitary sewer were extended to the intersection of 63rd and Shirley Streets to provide for separation of the combined sewers in neighborhoods surrounding Aksarben Village.

This project removed stormwater flows from the Saddle Creek combined sewers system and the proposed Saddle Creek Retention Treatment Basin (RTB) facilities.
