Osceola Parkway Phases 1 and 2

Osceola County needed a firm to provide professional engineering services in support of the two-phased roadway widening of Osceola Parkway.  During both phases, DRMP provided highway drainage solutions for the roadway widening project in an urban area.

For Phase One, DRMP provided storm sewer design and permitting services for a 1.2-mile roadway reconstruction (4-lanes to 6-lanes) project from just east of the Florida's Turnpike to Buenaventura Road.  For the second phase of the project, DRMP provided stormwater management design and permitting services for two ponds for a 2.1-mile roadway reconstruction (2-lanes to 6-lanes) project from just east of the Buenaventura Road to west of Boggy Creek Road.

DRMP was able to maximize the use of the existing drainage master systems by adjusting basin areas to match the impervious areas to the existing treatment ponds and conveying the remaining area matching the new impervious area to a new pond.  This allowed the new treatment ponds to be located outside the developed section of the corridor, which avoided taking homes.
