Palatka-Kirchherr Intersection

Flagler Estates, florida

Matthews Design Group (MDG) designed a new culvert crossing for the Palatka-Kirchherr intersection in Flagler Estates Road and St. Johns River Water Control District (SJRWMD) to replace the existing crossing that had deteriorated from age and wear. The new crossing design specified gabion lining of the channel walls to prevent erosion similar to that experienced with the old crossing. Other design features included improvements to the roadway and stormwater conveyance systems.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) provided partial funding for the intersection improvements.
