The City to make improvements to reduce localized flooding.
WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (Aug. 20, 2109) –
The City of West Palm Beach is moving forward with drainage improvements to reduce localized flooding along North Flagler Dr. and in the Northwood Shores neighborhood.
The multimillion dollar Currie Park Green Streets and Stormwater Improvements project will include:
- Storm drainage on N. Flagler Dr., between 34th - 35th Sts.;
- Additional treatment for stormwater runoff discharges into the Lake Worth Lagoon;
- An additional stormwater drain system at 3336 N. Flagler Dr. to provide additional relief of stormwater runoff on N. Flagler Dr.
Three phases of the stormwater improvements project include.
- Phase 1: Retention pond constructed on the former Holly Property--COMPLETED
- Phase 2: Engineering assessment to determine parallel storm drain pipe size and location as well as other improvements to increase system capacity and prevent stormwater backups to the Lake Worth Lagoon—UNDERWAY NOW.
- Phase 3: Design and permitting of the parallel storm drain, selection of contractor, and construction commencement: EXPECTED 2020.
Another key flooding mitigation project underway in the North End is the 26th
St. & Flagler Stormwater Rehabilitation Project, which involves the rehabilitation of storm pipes to ease flooding. The project is currently in design.
