Construction of CSO! Project features has started at Adams Park, in north Omaha. Nearly all of the former features at the low-lying area on the west side of the park, including the overlook, sidewalks, vegetation, etc. have been removed or demolished.
Construction crews are currently placing massive water conduits along the west side of the trees, on the east side of the low-lying area.
All features associated with the former Gabrielle Union Pond, have or will soon be completely removed.
