APWA-NC Awards Williamston, NC Stormwater Management Project of the Year

November 8, 2019

The Stormwater Management Division of the North Carolina Chapter of the American Public Works Association recently awarded the Town of Williamston’s Skewarkee Gut Canal Phase IV-A project as the inaugural Stormwater Management Project of the Year in the Infrastructure category. Rivers & Associates served as the project civil engineer for planning, design and construction administration.

Completed in 2018, the project required installation of 96 LF of 84-inch Class V reinforced concrete pipe culvert thirty feet deep under a section of active railroad track adjacent to the railroad overpass crossing of Main Street. A window of 84 hours was permitted by the railroad for 60 feet of track panel removal, excavation of the overpass approach fill embankment, culvert installation, bankfill and re-installation of the track panel. The track panel was replaced three hours ahead of schedule, not impacting train schedules.

In announcing the award, APWA-NC noted the unique character of the time constraint requirements and the exceptional quality control efforts.
