Project Detail

Broyles Road, originally an unimproved gravel county road, was constructed to city standards as a major collector (Broyles Avenue), including single directional lanes plus a center turning lane, with adjacent right-of-way for future expansion to four lanes plus a center turn lane.

At just over 5, 800 linear feet, the new alignment included the relocation of a major overhead electric transmission line, a 12” water distribution line, a 4” high pressure gas transmission line, along with fiber optic and analog phone lines.

The new Broyles Avenue also traversed two large drainages, Owl Creek and Goose Creek and one minor tributary to Goose Creek. With a COE-mandated “no-rise” design for the 100 year storm event, the three drainages required significant bridge structures, including a 6-bay 12’ by 4’ box culvert structure at Goose Creek and a 5-bay 12’ by 4’ box culvert structure at Owl Creek.

The project included coordination of work with the adjacent wetland mitigation site being constructed in conjunction with the construction of the new 10-MGD West Side Wastewater Treatment Plant, both also designed by McGoodwin, Williams & Yates.\
