City of Florence: Rhododendron Phase 2 Water and Road Improvements (Now Complete!)

We completed a project for the City of Florence that included major rehabilitation and improvements for approximately 6,000 lineal feet of existing roadway. The project also included significant utility infrastructure improvements, including the installation of over 6,600 linear feet of new potable waterline, and approximately 1,300 lineal feet of new underground storm water infrastructure.

Rhododendron Drive between 9th Street and Highway 101 had been without restorative improvements for far longer than its design life expectancy. The combined presence of potholes, alligator cracking, and sinkholes, together with the old age of the pavement, compromised the roadway structure and in many locations rendered the pavement entirely unusable.

The top picture (to the right) shows the condition of Rhododendron Drive before improvements. The second picture shows the roadway after improvements, and the bottom picture shows the improved roadway, having been retrofitted with a new curb, gutter, sidewalk, and retaining wall.

As a part of this project, approximately 3,300 lineal feet of existing roadway were retrofitted with new curb, gutter, and sidewalk, on one side of the road, just as has been proposed for the Severy Access Project. Storm water facilities were also upgraded to collect and convey storm water safely away from the project area.
