OVERVIEW

This multi-level freeway interchange reconstruction was complicated by traffic congestion, frequent flooding, and multiple agency stakeholders. HHR provided hydraulic analysis of existing conditions with various and alternative solutions for reconstruction. The analysis was complex and detailed due to multiple outfalls, two major watersheds, observed flooding, and inadequate capacity of ponds, bridges, pavement drainage, ditches, pump station, receiving channels. Cost-effective solutions included revision to 2 pump stations, re-routing flow, underground and above-ground detention, bridge modifications, and design to accommodate multiple construction phases.
