ELK 4.56 @ Peachland Water Control Structure

Project Description

This project provides for the construction of a stormwater control structure under Peachland Blvd at the Elkcam Waterway.  As a result of the Stormwater Master Plan that was completed in 1998, it was determined that many of the existing stormwater control structures were either undersized or had deteriorated since the 1960’s when they were originally built. The new structure will replace (2) 48" RCP's and weir with (1) 10’x10’ box culvert and a weir.

Project Location

Peachland Boulevard between Strasburg Drive and Alton Terrace

Latest Updates

Construction started Monday, October 12, 2020.   Peachland Boulevard will remain open to vehicular traffic, but please be aware of possible lane closures and delays thru the construction zone.  

Last 2 weeks:

The temporary bypass road for Phase 2 has been completed, and traffic has been moved to the temporary bypass road.  Both wingwalls on the north side have been poured.  The weir structure has been poured also.


The headwall portion was poured this morning, Friday 7/16/2021.  The crews are working to recover from the damage from Hurricane Elsa. 

Next 2 weeks:

Backfilling will begin.  Crews will start to install the side drainage as necessary.

Please note:  There may be temporary lane closures as necessary for safety.  If possible, please use an alternate route during the construction.

In the course of construction, it can be necessary to drop the water level at times.  The canal water levels may fluctuate during construction, but once construction is complete, the canal levels should return to normal and remain fairly constant.
