In addition to providing flood control, this reach of Bullard Wash Channel is designed to function as a recreational amenity and creates a sense of identity for the surrounding community. Wood/Patel prepared final design, construction plans, special provisions, and an engineer’s estimate for the extension of Bullard Wash Channel from Lower Buckeye Road to I-10. The project included channelizing the existing floodplain with landscaping, turf, irrigation, trails, and multi-use facilities along the channel alignment. Wood/Patel’s scope of services included public involvement, hydraulic design of a variable width channel, roadway design, utility relocations and CLOMR. Landscaping plans, recreational and multi-use facilities, bridge design and a flood response program for this project were also developed. This project was subdivided into five separate projects; three are various reaches of the Bullard Wash Channel from I-10 to Lower Buckeye Road, and two bridges and interim roadway improvements on Yuma Road and Van Buren Street.
