MADISON AVENUE & DARWIN ROAD DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS

The storm pipe network in the vicinity of Madison Avenue and Darwin Road intersection, within the Hedy Heights residential development, collects and conveys stormwater runoff to an outfall pipe that discharges into an unnamed tributary that crosses Veterans Park.  The unnamed tributary flows westerly to a pipe system that eventually crosses under Middlesex County Route 527/Englishtown Road. Old Bridge Township Department of Public Works (DPW) on several occasions removed debris from the outlet pipe located in Veterans Park to alleviate flooding at Madison Avenue and Darwin Road. It appears that since the outlet was blocked it caused stormwater to back up in the pipes, creating the intersection flooding.  Our DPW staff jetted and videoed the storm pipes and found no structural problems with the existing pipes which supports the possibility that there is a capacity issue. In order to alleviate the flooding issues at the Madison Avenue and Darwin Road intersection, a bypass pipe system is proposed along Madison Avenue and Marlin Road. The Madison Avenue & Darwin Road Drainage Improvements Contract includes the installation of approximately 962 L.F. of piping and the installation of 3 new inlets along Madison Avenue and 5 manholes and 1 inlet Marlin Road. This will alleviate severe flooding at the intersection of Madison Avenue and on Darwin Road.

This project is currently in the construction phase.
