Wood/Patel prepared the design of this downstream-most portion of the regional drainage system for the Loop 303 freeway corridor. The project is funded by the District and designed in coordination with ADOT, MCDOT, and Goodyear. The upstream end of the system begins north of Van Buren Street and discharges at the north bank of the Gila River (4.5 miles). The project includes: open channels, box culverts, storm drains, landscaping and aesthetic treatments. The complexity of the design addresses crossings of the Union Pacific Railroad, Kinder Morgan petroleum line, the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station 96″ cooling waterline, fiber optic lines, MC 85, Buckeye Water Conservation & Drainage District transmission canal, and Roosevelt Irrigation District facilities.
