Project Description

This project involves constructing stormwater improvements at the Surrey Lane cul-de-sac, including a conveyance storm sewer from the cul-de-sac to the Lee Road existing storm sewer and a low/flood overflow structure at the east side of the Surrey Lane cul-de-sac with a restrictor plate. Also, a relief swale will be constructed within the drainage easement. Two inlets will be added within the cul-de-sac area to improve drainage. A short segment of the Lee Road storm sewer system will be modified to accommodate the new storm sewer and flood overflow path. Currently, this area experiences cul-de-sac, front yard and rear yard flooding.
