Bullard Wash Channel Improvement

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. WOODPATEL prepared the final design, construction plans, special provisions, engineer’s estimate, and construction and administration and inspection 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. The WOODPATEL scope of services included public involvement, hydraulic design of a variable-width channel, roadway design, utility relocations, and CLOMR. The design team also developed landscaping plans, recreational and multi-use facilities, bridge design, and a flood response program for this project. 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.
