The Brinkley Road Stream Restoration and Asset Protection

The Brinkley Road Stream Restoration and Asset Protection

Enhancing and protecting a park’s natural resources.

Serving a busy recreational area with paved hiking trails, a flashy stream, and property located on the edge of two sub watersheds, the Brinkley Road Asset Protection project is a culmination of science and engineering working together to develop a sustainable solution vital for the community. Brinkley Road, which borders the southern end of Henson Creek Park, was on a sewer bypass due to a broken sewer line with an exposed manhole cover. The bypass pump ran from the manhole on the south side to the next manhole on the other side of the creek, impacting the park and the trail crossing in the area.

PRIME AE developed a solution that was cost-effective, sustainable, and enhanced the natural resource elements of the site. The team developed a strategy to protect the manhole, improve water quality in the neighboring Henson Creek Park and trail system, and limit the risk of further degradation of the channel. Key design components included an H&H study and a thorough understanding of the soils, floodplain, and wetland conditions. Our team investigated the best options for design, considering ingress and egress, feasibility, time of year for fish migration, soils, budget constraints, permitting required, and recreational limitations.

Through consideration of science-based engineering services, the Brinkley Road Stream Restoration and Asset Protection project in Henson Creek Park enhanced the beauty of the park for the thousands of recreational users that frequent the area and the nearly 1 million users of the local sewer basin.
