DRMP WINS MULTIPLE APWA FLORIDA CHAPTER WEST COAST BRANCH AWARDS

Tampa, Fla. –Congratulations to staff for taking home three major American Public Works Association (APWA) Florida Chapter West Coast Branch awards: the Award of Excellence; Environmental Project of the Year Award for the Lonesdale Place Drainage Improvements Project for Hillsborough County, Florida and the Transportation Project of the Year for the Lealman Sidewalk Improvements for Pinellas County, Florida.

Award of Excellence
This award is a special honor presented to a service provider, vendor, contractor, sponsor or organization that has significantly promoted and supported the APWA Florida Chapter West Coast Branch. The proposed award recipient is presented by recommendation from a branch executive committee member to the awards committee. The awards committee ultimately approves the recipient.

Lonesdale Place Drainage Improvements Project Background
Due to chronic flooding in the Lonesdale Place neighborhood, within Tampa’s Northdale area, DRMP was hired under Hillsborough County’s Miscellaneous Stormwater and Environmental Services continuing contract to provide drainage improvement solutions.

To reduce chronic flooding, DRMP determined that the neighborhood needed a new outfall pipe along Silverhill Drive to divert stormwater to Northdale Boulevard and alleviate roadway flooding.   A special weir called a “smart box” was designed into the new outfall pipe to provide two functions: the smart box provides flood relief while also maintaining the historic wetland elevation.   The environmentally friendly project maintains the hydroperiod of the existing wetland, thereby sustaining its water quality and environmental benefits.

Lealman Sidewalk Improvements Project Background

DRMP was selected by Pinellas County, Florida to design American Disability Act (ADA) compliant sidewalks to improve pedestrian safety and accessibility for various sidewalk segments throughout the Lealman community near St. Petersburg, Florida.  

DRMP staff provided sidewalk designs and permitting services for five segments. The Scope of Services included ADA-compliant sidewalks, curb cut ramps, roadway shoulders, driveways, drainage improvements, Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) plans and detailed cost estimates.  DRMP also led a public meeting to help residents and businesses understand the safety improvements being made in their neighborhood.
