The Key Largo II Roadway and Drainage Improvement Project (Bay Harbor, Sunset Point, Sunrise Point, Lime Grove Estates and Rays Cuda Canal subdivisions) is complete and under budget. The project included the installation of 36 drainage structures and reconstruction or milling and resurfacing of 14,870 linear feet of roadway. Based on available sea-level rise data, the design included reconstructing and raising several roads.
The contractor suggested a value engineering drainage layout to the County, which was reviewed and approved by the construction engineering and inspection consultant and the design engineer firm, eliminating road crossings of pipe infrastructure where possible.
Additionally, prior to construction commencement, the County’s project manager drove the project limits after a significant amount of rainfall and made some suggested adjustments to drain locations.
The project was grant funded by a Florida Department of Transportation Small County Outreach Program grant and a South Florida Water Management District grant.
