Drainage & Stormwater Management Design
Weiler Engineering Corporation was chosen to complete the design and permitting of the drainage and stormwater management system for this new hurricane evacuation route in Englewood, Florida.
The project included coordination with multiple consultants to design and permit the new roadway and the associated sidewalks, utility and drainage facilities. It was necessary to design parallel roadside swales within a narrow right-of-way for treatment, attenuation and conveyance of the stormwater runoff and to evaluate, analyze and design five separate off-site flood compensation areas to offset the impacts created by elevating the roadway above the 100 year flood elevation.
Responsibilities for WEC also included the necessary design and permitting to reroute Oyster Creek to construct the new roadway.
