The Frem Boustany Bridge Extension project involves the construction of a new roadway and bridge over the Isaac Verot Coulee that will connect Alastair Grove Ln to the new Sonoma Gardens residential development. The proposed structure will consist of a 3 span concrete bridge with a sidewalk on one side. The proposed construction will improve community connectivity and accessibility for pedestrians and motorists.
DRAINAGE AND GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE CONSIDERATIONS
Fill mitigation, which serves to maintain overall floodplain storage, will occur on this project. Stormwater detention areas tying to the drainage system are being developed in conjunction with each new LCG road project.
Environmental considerations have been identified and must be reviewed and potentially addressed. This includes:
Possible wetland mitigation.
Removal of existing trees.
*Note that this is not exhaustive of possible future environmental considerations.
A preliminary assessment of the project area is provided for the utilities listed below. Potential utility relocation costs will be included in the project budget if the infrastructure is located within the utility’s own servitude.
RIGHT OF WAY CONSIDERATIONS
The project at hand will involve the acquisition of right-of-way for the construction of the new roadway and bridge.
