North Collector Drainage Project

City of Aventura

The 209th Avenue Drainage Project included the design, permitting, coordination with the Florida Department of Transportation and installation of drainage improvements to the serve the City of Aventura’s Hospital District, located west of Biscayne Boulevard and north of NE 209th Street. This area had experienced localized flooding during heavy rainfall events due to the lack of a positive drainage outfall. The drainage improvements included the extensions of 48-inch and 54-inch drainage culverts within the Hospital District; the modification to an existing control structure on the east side of Biscayne Boulevard and the installation of drainage wells within the Hospital District area. The project was constructed in several phases due to limitations of the existing conditions.
