What to Expect
Pardon Our Dust, Roadway and Swales will be trenched, Excavation Material will be placed temporarily along grass swales prior to being hauled away, Roadways will be closed “Local Traffic Only” in 1 Block Segments at a time (Moving Operation), Access to Driveway
Roadway will be restored (including swales and sodding) to condition equal to or better than existing once project is complete.
Closed Drainage System with Catch Basins connected to exfiltration trenches (French Drains), proposed under the roadway pavement.
Roadway will be repaved, and new signing & marking will be installed.
Help reduce Localized Flooding Problems
More resilient drainage infrastructure to combat potential Future Sea Level Rise affects
Provide additional Water Quality Treatment provided by new exfiltration trenches to significantly reduce pollutant load contributions from this Sub-Basin to the Biscayne Aquifer for three major pollutants (i.e.. Total Phosphorous, Total Nitrogen, and Total Suspended Solids)
Interconnected Drainage System
Opportunity/Consideration for installation of traffic calming (addition of speed tables)
