The information on this page features many of the projects that have, currently are, or plan to be undertaken by the Town of Lyons for larger, capital scale improvements. Many are related to recovery and resiliency from the 2013 flood. However, as the Town begins to wrap up the multitude of flood recovery projects, there continue to be other new capital projects to improve the Town.  There also may be additional projects that aren’t depicted in this information. 

All time frames are estimates, and are subject to change at any time. Planned projects are conditional to funding, timing, and other variants. Unforeseen circumstances may alter the scope, budget, or viability of any project. The information on this page is intended to provide an overview of Lyons' post-flood projects, for informative purposes only.
