Paradise Ridge

The Flood Control District of Maricopa County identifies the Paradise Ridge Channel in the Pinnacle Peak West Area Drainage Master Study as being a necessary component to control the alluvial fan flood hazard in northeast Phoenix. When constructed, the Channel will reduce the flood hazard and complete the final step of a comprehensive solution to this drainage corridor. The project includes designing a channel system and associated structures to contain and convey the 100-year flood within Rawhide Wash from Scottsdale Road to the SR101L culvert system. The joint project between the Flood Control District of Maricopa County, the City of Phoenix, and the Arizona State Land Department as a critical stakeholder alleviates a new area for development. The AHJ used the Construction Manager at Risk delivery method for this project.
