EPB-3 CANAL/HOOD ROAD BOX CULVERT CROSSING
Palm Beach Gardens, FL
Responsibilities for this project included the design, permitting, and construction observation of a concrete box culvert associated with the widening of Hood Road. Surveying, and civil, structural, and geotechnical engineering services were provided to the Northern Palm Beach County Improvement District.
Several challenges were addressed during design: maintain drainage flow during construction, which was accomplished utilizing two existing deteriorated culverts adjacent to the proposed box culvert and stand-by emergency pumps; and design and construct the improvements next to the FEC Railroad right-of-way.
