Twin Lakes Subdivision Flooding Mitigation Project

The project proposes to elevate approximately 4,300 linear feet of low-lying roadway in the Twin Lakes subdivision in Key Largo and construct a stormwater collection system, pump station, and injection wells to mitigate for sea-level rise and stormwater flooding in the community. Twin Lakes is located in Key Largo on the bayside at mile marker 102.5.

Grant Request: $5,717,957

Stillwright Point Flooding Mitigation Project

The project proposes to design and construct improvements to roads in the community to mitigate for sea-level rise and stormwater flooding.  The scope of work will consist of elevating the low-lying roads and constructing a stormwater collection system, pump station, and disposal injection wells to adapt the community for the impacts of sea-level rise and improve drainage in the area.  The Stillwright Point community is located in Key Largo on the bayside at mile marker 105.4

Grant Request: $23,134,159

Florida Keys l Regional Resilience Roads Adaptation Planning Project

The project's purpose is to develop a cohesive roads adaptation capital implementation plan for all 5 local municipalities in Monroe County using phased flooding and sea-level rise resilience strategy that is based upon data-driven outcomes for high-quality mitigation planning. In addition, Monroe County will engage the residents of 3 lower-income vulnerable neighborhoods, one each in the upper, middle, and lower Keys to gather input for the conceptual designs of neighborhood road adaptation projects:

  • Phase I is the collection and integration of street-level mobile LiDAR Data for all locally maintained roads within each of the five municipalities.
  • Phase II is the development of a roads infrastructure vulnerability analysis based upon the collected mobile LiDAR data for the five municipalities and incorporating the reduction of risk to community lifelines. The outcome is an adaptation capital plan containing a ranked list with estimated costs of roads adaptation projects for each municipality.
  • Phase III is a neighborhood livability outreach and planning effort for 3 neighborhoods in Monroe County that are vulnerable to sea-level rise. Neighborhood meetings will be held to engage the residents and obtain feedback on potential road adaptation conceptual design recommendations to ensure the resident's needs are identified, discussed in-depth,  and incorporated into conceptual design plans to the extent possible.

Grant Request:  $2,100,000
