Erdman Anthony provided professional services for the 1.5-mile long roadway
widening and reconstruction of Tenth Avenue North from Military Trail to
Congress Avenue. The project involved several challenging grading and drainage
issues. Located in Lake Worth, the roadway bisected a heavily developed corridor
serving commercial and residential developments. Right-of-way limitations
required creative grading of the roadway to match existing grades without
completely reconstructing the existing pavement.
The design used the
existing drainage system as much as possible. Existing drainage structures were
modified and fitted with new tops to fit within the proposed roadway while
salvaging the culvert system. Installing exfiltration trenches near the system
outfalls provided improved water quality for the additional impervious area. The
design included off-line systems to improve quality and used oval pipes to keep
the trenches as high above the water table as possible.
A number of
existing utilities within this older, highly developed urban corridor had to be
considered during the construction. These included water, sewer, force main,
gas, and existing telephone and overhead facilities. Surveying services included
construction easement sketches, field surveying for design and utility
coordination, and location of soil borings and underground utilities.
