Black Water Gas Station
The water infrastructure for this development consists of 4.15-miles of 12-inch water line just to bring water to the project. An additional 6,000 linear feet of water line will be installed with the first phase of homes. The design for the water line also included coordination with proposed storm drainage structures to avoid conflicts from the proposed paving improvements. The water system was designed with booster pump stations and storage tanks to ensure adequate pressure and flow to the new development. The paving and storm drain infrastructure for this development consists of 2.7-miles of roadway improvements to reach the site, plus an additional 1.6-miles of streets constructed in the first phase of homes. Over a dozen different storm drainage structures were designed with the roadway, including the use of three sets of ConSpan arches.
Project Requirements / Unique Characteristics:
- Special Consideration Used in the Design of Drainage Structures to Reduce Costs & Limit Impact in Existing Washes
- Enhancing the Roadway Profile to Closely Match Existing Grading; Reducing Cut & Fill, While Optimizing Driving Conditions
- Aligned the Proposed Water Main to Account for Future Roadway Expansion & Mitigate Storm Drain Crossings
