Does anyone have a good source for cost information on the difference between a regular streetscape and one that incorporates bioretention? Thanks

Water is allowed to enter then exit the raingarden farther down grade.... in a small to medium event most precip will be captured and perc in these areas. It is Florida so larger rain events will be allowed to overflow and enter into the existing culverts at intersections.

So does the water go through in the right hand corner of each cell? Or is each cell a separate containment area?
