After moderately heavy rain and during periods of King Tide, sections of the parking area and roadway are impassable for pedestrians. These conditions adversely affect visitors to the pier, the Quarterdeck Restaurant, and the beach. In February 2020, the City Commission authorized Craven Thompson and Associates to design drainage improvements. In February 2021, the City Commission awarded A.D.A. Engineering, Inc. to construct drainage improvement consisting of installing over 800 linear feet of new drainage pipe, new inlets, and new tidal valves.
This park's drainage project addresses flooding from stormwater and King Tide events on the north end of Ocean Park. The project is designed to move floodwaters south and connect with the existing drainage system via a new drainage pipe. In addition, a new tidal valve will prevent Whisky Creek from flowing into the drainage system during King Tide periods.
The Project has been completed.
SEA IT - DANIA ON THE RISE PROJECT
Dania Cove / SW 25 Terrace Drainage Improvements - This is a residential drainage project to address flooding from stormwater on the north end of SW 25 Terrace. The project consisted of recontouring the road and installing drainage structures to direct stormwater to retention areas in the park. In addition, the area was curbed and paved.
After moderately heavy rain, the roadway, parking area, and entrance to Dania Cove Park would flood, blocking access to the park. In March 2020, the City Commission authorized Calvin Giordano and Associates to design drainage improvements. In April 2021, the City Commission awarded Miguel Lopez Jr. Inc. to construct drainage improvements.
