The project took place at the surface parking lot across the street from the site of the historic War Memorial Arena. The OnCenter is home to countless entertainment attractions for local, regional and national audiences. Since 1992, the OnCenter has been the premiere convention location for the region.
This stormwater retrofit project included repaving the existing parking lot with porous asphalt along three sides. In addition to the pavement resurfacing, the project featured the design and construction of an infiltration trench along three sides of the parking lot to manage runoff from the entire lot as well as from adjacent streets. A new tree infiltration trench and a new section of sidewalk were also installed on site.
The Oncenter parking lot also includes several green energy features, including energy-efficient LED lighting, electric car-charging stations, and a BigBelly solar powered trash compactor as well as the stormwater capturing green infrastructure improvements.
