A portion of Mirror Lake Drive was washed away by Hurricane Matthew on October 8, 2016. This portion of roadway passed over the Mirror Lake Dam. A portion of the dam was also washed away by the flood waters. Following the disaster, the City conducted an assessment of the roadway and dam to determine an estimated cost for repairs. The estimated cost to repair the dam and roadway is $1.9 million.
A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) was issued by the City on April 18. Engineering design consultants will respond to the RFQ with a proposal for the design of repairs to the dams. These proposals are due on May 5, 2017. The City will review the proposals and select an engineering design firm. Design is anticipated to be completed by November 2017, with construction completed by September 2018.
