Construction Begins on the Haverhill Waterway Stormwater Control Structure

 

CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (Feb. 6, 2019) – Construction of the Haverhill Waterway stormwater control structure project will begin Feb. 25. Charlotte County Public Works Engineering Division explored every option to keep the roadway open but due to right-of-way constrictions the road must be closed. Public safety is our highest priority during any project, therefore Peachland Boulevard will remain closed between Waterside Drive Street and Harbor Boulevard at the Haverhill Waterway control structure during the construction. Detour signs will be in place to aid in travel through this area. Travelers should allow extra time when planning to travel through this area or seek alternate routes.

The Stormwater Master Plan completed in 1998 determined that many of the existing stormwater control structures were either undersized or had deteriorated since the 1960s when they were originally built. The Haverhill Waterway structure on Peachland Boulevard is both undersized and beyond its lifespan. The new structure will replace two 54-inch corrugated metal pipes and weir with two box culverts and a weir. Construction is taking place during dry season to make it easier to control the water flow in the canals.
