Many neighborhoods in the Cambridge area are susceptible to the impacts of flooding. Properties with basements and first floor levels at a lower elevation are especially vulnerable. Additionally, the assessment on climate change shows that this flooding will be more frequent over time if nothing is done. This Port Infrastructure Improvement Project which consists of the construction of a cast-in place concrete storage holding tank and associated underground pumping station located at the City Owned Parking Lot 6 (PL-6), between Bishop Allen Drive and Massachusetts Avenue, will greatly reduce the frequency of flooding and sewer backups.

Bryant is performing construction layout services as well as construction monitoring services for this project.
