Buckingham Road

Through our Stormwater On-call contract with the City, McAdams completed the design, permitting and construction administration of an expedited culvert replacement project on Buckingham Road. The culvert was overwhelmed by the remnants of Hurricane Florence and failed, exposing a City waterline and threatening an existing sanitary sewer line in the road embankment. McAdams prepared an expedited design for the replacement and helped to oversee the construction process for the City. McAdams completed site surveys and culvert sizing, meeting the intended City level of service for this roadway crossing. As the project is located along a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regulated stream, a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) was prepared and ultimately approved.
