Lakeview Drive Flood Relief

Client: Leon County Public Works
Location: Leon County, FL
Size: 0.75 miles
Service: Transportation & Mobility

Highlights:
Contact Staff: James P. Sullivan, P.E.
 

This project is located along a 0.75-mile portion of Lakeview Drive, a rural residential roadway located in southwest Leon County, that connects Lake Bradford Road and Pioneer Road. Roadway improvements included raising the road profile approximately 1 foot, re-grading roadside swales, reconstruction of existing cross drain including installation of weir with flood gates, new driveway installations, re-striping, and installation of signage.

For this project, an Existing Conditions Stormwater Model was developed for the entire drainage basin that drains to Lake Bradford, Grassy Lake, and under Lakeview Drive. Numerous rainfall events, with various frequencies and durations, were simulated for the basin to determine the improvements that were necessary for controlling flooding and reducing the back-charging of Grassy Lake into Lake Bradford. The design successfully reduced roadway flooding by increasing the capacity of stormwater conveyance under Lakeview Drive and reducing the back-charging of Grassy Lake into Lake Bradford.
