Permitting of drainage and stormwater management system for this new hurricane evacuation route along Winchester Boulevard in Englewood Florida. The project included coordination with multiple consultants. Design and permit of 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. 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.
