Freese and Nichols’ innovative underground detention project in the historic Central Arlington Heights neighborhood of Fort Worth is currently being advertised for construction. This project included the design of a custom detention system underneath a flood-prone residential street in the historic neighborhood. The area had previously been studied by Freese and Nichols to determine the extent of the existing flooding and to identify solutions to eliminate flooding in a 100-year storm. The previous studies identified that 100-year solutions are not affordable and partial solutions that...

In order to allow for development around the Will Rogers Memorial Center, Freese and Nichols provided design services for the realignment of Harley Avenue.

Freese and Nichols evaluated how to route a large upstream drainage area through the project while considering downstream ecological impacts to the multiple stakeholders in this active community. This project involved extensive coordination with these stakeholders, including Fort Worth Botanic Garden, potential future upstream improvements in the Eastern Arlington Heights neighborhood, site-specific environmental constraints set...

How Does It Work?
Generally, a 1-D hydraulic engine is used to model flow through storm sewers or channels, and the 2-D hydraulic engine is used to model the overland flow that occurs when the drainage system capacity is exceeded. However, the results from a 2-D model are only as good as the data used to build the surface model. So, the first requirement for 2-D modeling is an accurate surface model that represents the ground surface. If possible, the surface model should be built with breaklines that represent physical features such as curbs, walls, or changes in...
