Flood Diversion and Control Project: Philadelphia Avenue Area, Massapequa Park

About this Project

LKB was retained by the Town of Oyster Bay to provide engineering services to design, permit, and provide construction support services for this project.

The project was funded through the Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery (GOSR) with the intent to make improvements to protect the Philadelphia Avenue area of the Village of Massapequa Park from the impacts of flooding due to stormwater. The project location is routinely impacted by flooding from rainfall events.

The scope included preparation of a design report to identify deficiencies and needs related to the drainage system and roadways, as well as proposes solutions. At the completion and acceptance of the Design Report, final design was progressed and contract documents (plans, specification and estimates) were prepared.

Major components of the design included installation of new drainage structures and pipes, raising the roadway grades, replacement of concrete curbs and aprons, installation of sidewalk ramps at sidewalk intersection quadrants, and replacement of roadway pavement.

LKB provided bid services, including responding to inquiries from prospective bidders; review of contractors’ qualifications and references; preparation of a bid summary; and recommendation of the award to the lowest responsible and qualified bidder. LKB provided construction support services during the construction phase, which included review and approval of detailed shop drawings, catalog cuts, and miscellaneous submittals for compliance with contract documents; review and responses to RFI’s (Request for Information) and Change Order Requests; and attendance of progress and project meetings, as necessary.
