Buckingham Road Culvert Replacement

Following the remnants of Hurricane Florence in September 2018, the City of Durham was forced to close Buckingham Road due to a failure of the culvert over a major tributary to Third Fork Creek. McAdams partnered with the City to design a new reinforced concrete box culvert and roadway repair. Construction began in September 2020 and the road reopened in February 2021. 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. McAdams is committed to serving communities and improving the safety of stormwater infrastructure!
