Linwood Branch knows that while we may not be able to control the tides or the weather, there is a lot we can do to reduce the street and structure flooding that disrupts our daily lives and local commerce.

 

As a City Councilman, Linwood has worked hard to secure millions for new neighborhood flood control improvements all across District 6 – projects that are making a real difference during heavy rains and high tides. 

 

They include: 

 

  • Drainage improvements at 5 Atlantic Avenue stormwater pump stations and 3 low-lying culverts

 

  • Drainage system improvements in Lakewood and the Beach borough neighborhoods bordered by 17th Street, Parks Avenue, Norfolk Avenue and Pacific Avenue.

 

  • Seatack Neighborhood Drainage Improvements to reduce chronic flooding along Birdneck Road, Sea Street, Hughes Avene and Butts Lane.

 

  • Drainage improvements to reduce street and structure flooding at First Colonial Road and Oceana Boulevard. 

 

  • Much-needed repairs to a cave in-prone stormwater line in the 2800 block of Arctic Avenue.

 

  • Culvert expansion and replacement on Pinewood Road near Princess Anne Country Club to reduce chronic flooding. 

 

  • Central Resort District drainage improvements in an area bordered by Atlantic Avenue, the Convention Center, 23rd Street and 17th Street.

 

  • Storm drainage improvements to relieve widespread flooding at the intersection of 21st Street and Baltic Avenue.

Linwood won’t stop there!
