Past flooding in the area located south of CR 4050 (Orange Avenue), north of SR 400 (Beville Road), east of SR 5A (Nova Road), and west of US 1 (S. Ridgewood Avenue) has impacted as many as 800 structures and caused $72 million in property damage. This project will reduce flood risk in the area where flooding is a recurring problem due to its low elevation, the frequent breaching of the Nova Canal, and the continued impact of sea-level rise along the Halifax River to the east.
