Upper Peninsula Watershed Drainage Improvements Dale Mabry/Henderson Trunkline Design-Build Project

dale mabry henderson

PROJECT GOAL

Alleviate long-standing flooding issues within the City of Tampa’s Stormwater improvement area.

PROJECT BACKGROUND

In 2016 the City of Tampa approved a Stormwater Improvement Assessment which established funding for much needed capital improvement projects aimed at alleviating flooding within the City’s improvement area. The Upper Peninsula Watershed Drainage Improvements Dale Mabry/Henderson Trunkline Design-Build Project is one of many projects to be designed and constructed as part of that program.

 

The Project consists of the design and construction of approximately 8,100 feet of box culvert, laterals, inlets and associated utility relocations, commencing at the Estrella Street outfall and terminating at the intersection of Dale Mabry Highway and Watrous Avenue. The remainder of the trunkline to the intersection of Dale Mabry Highway and Henderson Boulevard will be constructed by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). In addition to the trunkline, the Project will also incorporate state-of-the-art “green” infrastructure solutions to reduce pollutant loading on Old Tampa Bay. These solutions are to be developed during the design phase.

PROJECT TIMELINE

The design, construction and installation of the stormwater drainage conveyance system will take approximately 30 months to complete. To minimize the impacts to residences, businesses and schools within the corridor, the Project will be implemented in three phases.


Phase 1
– Estrella Street (from the Old Tampa Bay outfall to Manhattan Avenue)
Design: Start July 2017
Construction: Start date estimated to be April 2018

Phase 2 – Manhattan Avenue (from Estrella Street to Watrous Avenue)
Design: Start July 2017
Construction: Start date to be determined

Phase 3 – Watrous Avenue (from Manhattan Avenue to Dale Mabry Highway)
Design: Start July 2017
Construction: Start date to be determined
