University of Texas – Central Campus Storm Drainage Outfall Analysis – Austin, Texas
The Speedway Avenue on the UT campus serves as one the primary thoroughfares for UT students and staff. The conversion of Speedway Avenue is an exciting new project that will provide a focal point on the campus for an outdoor learning environment by making Speedway Pedestrian friendly and ready for all the UT campus activities. A vital step in this project was the drainage analysis. The existing conditions of a roadway and curb inlets were to be converted into pavers and a continuous trench drain running down the center of the new walkway. With these surface elements and topographic alterations, it was important to integrate the new replacement system with the existing drainage systems currently serving the UT campus. Hook ’em!
