Flood mitigation on Church Street in Huntsville

Church Street upgrades and improvements near Pratt Ave. continue in downtown Huntsville as traffick has been rerouted onto a new overpass leaving the old bridge structure exposed.


Part of the improvements include flood mitigation along Pinhook Creek immediately adjacent to Church Street as seen in the photo. The Church Street Bridge crossing Pinhook Creek has previously been flooded over by as much as two feet of water.

In order to mitigate vehicular flooding in and out of downtown Church Street is being widened and permanently rerouted across Pratt Ave. where it will finally terminate at Oakwood Avenue.
