Elevated Infrastructure Corridors

Summary

Infrastructure keeps systems running, but is often located in low-lying or unprotected conditions. Infrastructure corridors can be raised incrementally to accompany the rise in floods and storm surge. The first phase introduces precast utility trenches with sidewalks on top to allow evacuation. The second phase raises the roadway. The third phase elevates development to meet increasing base flood elevation requirements. When the corridor is complete, it provides continuity for transportation and utility infrastructure for the neighborhood, allowing people to shelter in place.
