Brookhaven Home Depot Site Design

Brookhaven, Mississippi · Lincoln County

Economic growth around Interstate 55 in Brookhaven, Miss., continued into the 2000s and took a big step in 2004 when Ergon Properties, Inc., utilized TIFF financing to begin planning for the construction of a new prototype Home Depot store on the northwest corner of Exit 40. WGK, Inc., was selected to prepare the 26-acre commercial site for the $1.1 million investment, providing surveying, utility service design, storm water design and calculations, earthwork calculations, pavement design, permitting with the Mississippi Department of Transportation and preparation of surveying data to be used in construction staking. The site required detailed grading and ditching, along with storm water collection structures, to meet new city regulations regarding runoff.
