From the Lake Worth Herald: FDOT To Begin Stormwater Improvement Project In LW

For the entire story go to LWHerald.com:

     The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has started construction on the stormwater improvement project at the western base of the Lake Worth Bridge.
     City staff identified a severe flooding issue and has been working together with the FDOT for the last year to design and install stormwater improvement measures that will reduce flooding along the waterfront near Golfview Drive and the bridge.
     The expected benefit of this project is reduced flooding to Lake Avenue, Golfview Drive, and the entrance to the Lake Worth Bridge. Heavy rainfall events coupled with high tide cycles causes severe flooding due to the existing drainage systems being overfilled with tidal water and rainwater simultaneously.
