The Flood Control District of Maricopa County (FCD), in partnership with the Town of Fountain Hills, awarded a contract to CS Construction, Inc. to construct two concrete box culverts in Ashbrook Wash at Bayfield Drive and Saguaro Boulevard (please see map). Other improvements include installing storm drain pipe, catch basins, retaining walls, curb and gutter, sidewalk and rip rap erosion protection, removing non-indigenous palm trees within the wash and hydro seeding the area. This project will provide improvements that will increase the amount of floodwater the wash can carry and improve the emergency access through the community during major storm events.
Construction will begin in late October 2015 and project completion is scheduled for May 2016, weather permitting. Construction work hours will be 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday; hours will vary with seasonal changes. Construction crews may work evenings and weekends, if needed.
