Glenn McConnell Parkway is located directly adjacent to the Church Creek drainage basin, which has known flooding issues. The above exhibit illustrates the existing drainage patterns along Glenn McConnell Parkway with respect to the Church Creek drainage basin.
This drainage exhibit demonstrates that most of Glenn McConnell Parkway drains via stormwater pipes and open ditches to Long Branch, which currently has no connection to the Church Creek basin.
A portion of Glenn McConnell Parkway, from Bees Ferry Road to just over the existing bridges at the CSX railway, drains to the Church Creek basin.
The Project Team will design the proposed road widening and associated drainage infrastructure so that the Church Creek and Long Branch drainage basins have no negative impacts.
