Improving Flood Control to Protect a Community

Challenge

During significant rain events, undersized culverts were causing flooding to dozens of properties in the community. As a result, public health and safety were affected.

Solution

The undersized culverts were replaced with a 60-foot-span twin-bridge structure and the entire channel profile was lowered. The results were increased channel capacity and better safety for residents. The improvements have also contributed to redevelopment in the area.
