Park Edge Drive Flood Mitigation

Project Description:

City Engineering is upgrading the storm mains at the intersection of Park Edge Dr and Park Ridge Dr which flow through a public easement at 6741 Park Edge Dr. This project will involve the upsizing of street inlets, relocation of the upgraded storm main and repaving approximately 100 feet of Park Edge Dr. Storm main will be relocated from the existing location within an easement between the condominiums at 6741 Park Edge Dr and through a new easement within the south driveway of 6741 Park Edge Dr and connect to the adjacent Stormwater Utility property (Greentree) to the east.

 

A section of Park Edge Dr, from 6702 Park Edge Dr to the south driveway of 6741 Park Edge Dr, may be closed for a period of 7 days. Contractors will work to maintain access.

Plans for the project can be found :

McKenna Blvd/Gammon Ln Flood Mitigation Project

Last Updated: 06/21/2018

The east Park Edge Dr neighborhood consists of several cul-de-sacs that back the City of Madison's West Badger Mill Creek - Elver Park Greenway. That greenway carries water from Greentree Pond north of the neighborhood and discharges via pipes under McKenna Blvd to Elver Park. The associated watershed is approximately 1.4 square miles in area, and drains from north to south.

 

Since 2016, Park Edge Dr residents have noted several rain events in which water from the greenway flooded the neighborhood and entered their structures. Additionally, McKenna Blvd, which is a main thoroughfare through the neighborhood and houses police and fire stations for the west side, has overtopped and become impassible several times. As such, City Engineering is proposing a public works improvement to fix this issue. The City is looking at design options, which may include a project that would lower the overflow elevation in Elver Park, which should reduce flooding in the Park Edge neighborhood and lower the flood elevation on McKenna Blvd itself. The potential design could include some road work along McKenna Blvd and parking lot reconstruction and grading in Elver Park.

 Hawks Landing Flood Mitigation

Project Background

Hawks Landing is a residential development located on the far west side of Madison at the northwest quadrant of South Pleasant View Road (CTH 'M') and Midtown Road. Construction of the development began in 2001. The development includes approximately 300 homes and an 18-hole golf course, the Hawks Landing Golf Club.

Hawks Landing has six (6) stormwater control ponds, all located within the golf course. Three of these ponds (LBMC North, LBMC SW, and LBMC East Ponds) are located on the west side of the course and drain to Lower Badger Mill Creek (LBMC), and three (UBMC North, UBMC SE, and UBMC SW Ponds) are located on the east side and drain to Upper Badger Mill Creek (UBMC).

Project Description

The west side of the development, as shown in Map 1 PDF

, experiences drainage problems during large storm events. Lots 169, 170, and 250 experience flooding during events, with the highest water levels and highest flows occurring on Lot 170. In September 2016, the City contracted with MSA Professional Services, Inc. to conduct a drainage study for the western portion of Hawks Landing, the area roughly bounded by Eaglewood Drive on the north, Breezy Trail on the east, Mid Town Road on the south, and Shady Point Drive on the west.

identifies shows the delineated watersheds and the general flow directions for the study area. Note that, for the purposes of this project, the ponds shown in Map 2 have been assigned alphabetic identifiers:

LBMC SW Pond (Map 1) = Pond C (Map 2)

LBMC North Pond (Map 1) = Pond D (Map 2)

LBMC East Pond (Map 1) = Pond E (Map 2)

Flooding downstream from Pond C is due in part to observed plugging of the pond outlet structure; however, significant additional contributors to flooding are discharges from upstream ponds (Ponds D&E on Map 2) which appear to be much greater than originally planned. The City of Madison is currently working with Hawks Landing Golf Course to design and construct additional detention on the golf course upstream of Pond C to minimize flows out of that pond into the neighborhood. The City of Madison also intends to modify Pond C's outlet to minimize clogging during future events. When completed, these designs and associated construction schedules will be posted to this website.

 

In addition to Hidden Hill Dr and Shady Point Dr, flooding occurs in the north part of the neighborhood as well, north of intersection of Hill Creek Dr and Grassy Hollow Dr. This flooding is due in large part to runoff from the undeveloped farm field north of the Hawks Landing neighborhood. The City has contracted with MSA Professional Services, Inc. to investigate solutions to this flooding problem.

Gammon Road, S. and West Towne Path

Update - Public information meeting scheduled for June 27, 2018 - see details below.

 

Project Description:

The City of Madison in conjunction with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation is proposing a street reconstruction project on South Gammon Road from Seybold Road to Mineral Point Road and construction of a shared-use path, known as the West Towne Path, from Grand Canyon Drive to Junction Road within the City of Madison. 

 

There are multiple phases of construction planned for the project.  The first phase of the project includes reconstruction of South Gammon Road and construction of the shared use-path from the Struck Street pedestrian underpass of the Beltline to the west side of South Gammon Road. This phase includes construction of a pedestrian underpass of Gammon Road.  Construction of phase one of the project is planned to take place in 2020.  Later phases of construction will include construction of the shared-use path from the west side of Gammon Road to Junction Road. The later phases of construction will include construction of a pedestrian underpass of Watts Road.  The year of construction for the later phases of the project will be determined as funding becomes available.   The reconstruction of South Gammon Road will consist of the replacement of the roadway base course, curb and gutter and concrete pavement with spot repairs of the concrete sidewalk. Public utilities, including sanitary sewer, storm sewer and water main will also be replaced as necessary with the project.  Upgrades will also be made to the street lighting and traffic signal systems.

 

Construction of the shared-use, West Towne Path will consist of an asphalt path, 10-feet wide, with 2-foot grass shoulders, to accommodate two-way bicycle traffic, pedestrians and other non-motorized users.

The West Towne Path will provide an east-west connection for non-motorized users from the Junction Road (CTH M) to the West Town Mall area and to the near west side of Madison. 

 

Project Schedule:

Phase 1 (Gammon Road and West Towne Path from Struck to Gammon): Construct in 2020

Phase 2 (West Towne Path from Gammon to Junction): Construction year to be determined.
