What is the City doing?

The Haigh Road Storm Drain System is more than 50 years old and in need of improvements. This 1,234 foot long open storm drain channel has two retaining walls, one of which is leaning over and has a potential for failure.  The goal of this project is to install a new closed box storm drain culvert over the existing channel to stop the leaning wall from failing.

The next Community Meeting will held on January 11 at 6:00 PM at the Newbury Park Branch Library, 2331 Borchard Road.  We look forward to seeing you there!  To ensure you are notified, please contact Far Levers, Project Manager at flevers@toaks.org.


Where will the City be doing this project?

This project is located just east of Haigh Road, south of the 101 Freeway and adjacent to several residential properties.  The impact to nearby residents and businesses will be minimal and area residents will be advised of construction work in advance.  During construction, there may be some temporary impacts on traffic congestion along Haigh Road.  A Project Location Map is provided for reference.

What are the Advantages of the Project's Design?

a) Provides a long-term solution that minimizes impact to area residents

b) The closed design improves safety and minimizes debris

c) Improves drainage and reduces the risk of flooding

d) Eliminates standing water hazards, odors and mosquitoes

What will be the Impact to Area Residents?

The final design of this project is scheduled to be completed by March 2018 with construction to start by Summer 2018.  Construction is expected to take six months to complete. The expected impact to area residents include the following:

a) Lane closure and construction noise on East side of Haigh Rd during constructions hours

b) Replacement of trees along West channel wall (street side)

c) Minor pruning and isolated impacts to trees and bushes on East channel wall (resident side)

How is this Project funded?

 This project is funded by Developer Fees, and is estimated to cost approximately 1 Million Dollars to complete.
