J2 was the lead firm for this exciting project and was responsible for the river hydrology and hydraulic studies and reports, natural viagra bank stabilization design, and development of the overall master plan and construction documents for over two miles of river restoration in New River, from Grand Avenue north to the Skunk Creek confluence. As the lead design firm, J2s responsibilities included the coordination of containment of the Standard Project Flood (SPF) within the river corridor and the protection of bridges and the surrounding development.
Containment of the SPF within the right of way was the primary project goal, but J2, the Flood Control District, and the City of Peoria staff worked closely together to provide additional environmental and recreational recommendations for the project. This resulted in the successful integration of the overall theme of a “Connected Riparian Desert”. This theme relies on close coordination with the need for bank stabilization, for ecosystem conservation/enhancement, for re-vegetation plans, and for multi-use recreational trail system grading and alignment, The project features the creative reuse of river materials and the location and design of the various public staging areas and overlooks placed along and within the project area.
