What has the City Completed?

The Haigh Road Storm Drain System is more than 50 years old and was in need of improvements. This 1,234-foot long open storm drain channel had two retaining walls, one of which had been leaning over and was at risk for failure.  This project installed a new closed box storm drain culvert over the existing channel to prevent the Eastern wall from failing.



Where was the City working?

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 was minimal and area residents were advised of construction work in advance. A Project Location Map is provided for reference.

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 was the Impact to Area Residents?


·Tree Replanting along Haigh Road:

Replacement of removed trees along Haigh Road shall occur between November 2018 through January 2019.  Please note that not all the trees removed from Haigh Road shall be replaced in kind.  This is due to space restrictions created by the larger footprint of the box.

· Construction Hours: Lane closure and construction noise on Haigh Rd occurred between 7:30AM-4:30PM.

· Tree & Bush Trimmings: Minor pruning for trees and bushes which extend beyond the Eastern Storm Drain Channel Wall occurred as the contractor installed new sections of channel. 

Where is the Contractor currently working?

October 22nd-24th: Contractor performed clean up efforts & completed the project and demobilized on October 24, 2018.

How is this Project funded?

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