6th Avenue Flood Abatement

Columbus, GA


Foley Products Company



Bounded on three sides by rivers and creeks, the City of Columbus faced the potential of major flooding. Foley Products Company asked SGH to design precast concrete box culverts for stormwater management. The city’s long-term drainage plan implemented 8,350 lf of precast concrete box culverts in sizes ranging from 8 ft by 6 ft to 14 ft by 12 ft. SGH recommended a configuration that delivered the right hydraulic capacity while minimizing disruption to downtown Columbus.
