The Lyndhurst Avenue project was originally included in the Kenilworth/Romany Storm Drain Improvement Project. The Kenilworth/Romany area was scaled back and Lyndhurst Avenue was left outside of the project limits. However, due to complaints of street flooding from the Lyndhurst residents, the area re-emerged as a City of Charlotte Maintenance Team project. For this project, Armstrong Glen, P.C. provided hydrologic and hydraulic analysis of the existing storm drain system along with the design of a new system to serve this area. The flooding issues are created by lack of storm drain piping and inlets. All Lyndhurst Street drainage flows to two existing catch basins at the corner of Lyndhurst Avenue and East Kingston Avenue. Improvements will consist of the installation of 260 linear feet of 18” RCP, 70 linear feet of 15” RCP, six standard catch basins, and four traffic bearing junction boxes. Utility relocations will consist of 500 linear feet of six inch ductile iron water main, 157 linear feet of gravity sewer and one new sewer manhole. Residential water and sewer services will be tied onto the new water and sewer mains. Sections of concrete curb and gutter will be replaced, and Lyndhurst Avenue will be milled and re-paved.
Construction cost for the work is $400,000.
