Leontyne Ditch Improvements

Location: Jacksonville, FL

Client: City of Jacksonville
Project Description: Connelly & Wicker prepared construction plans for the repair of 200 feet of maintenance berm within Ireland Drive ditch.  The ditch bottom was experiencing erosion, causing the side slopes to fail due to slopes greater than 2:1.  A masonry wall on private property was in danger of failure.  Connelly & Wicker designed a cost effective solution to rebuild the embankment using geoweb reinforcing, which allowed 1:1 side slope construction.
