    Storm 2006 Capital Project Updates

    As progress continues in the citywide project addressing the critical repair and reconstruction priorities that resulted from Storm 2006, repairs have initiated on Castellano Drive and the second phase of the Westside Flood Damage Improvements Project reaches channel reconstruction.

    Castellano Drive
    Effective October 30, 2007 construction commenced in the Castellano Drive-Junction Box/Inlet Repairs Project. The repairs will consist of the removal and disposal of the existing damaged inlet box and the construction of a new inlet box near the intersection of Mesa and Castellano. The public is advised that Castellano will be closed to traffic from Mesa to Vaquero to allow for the necessary repairs.

    • Access to and from Mesa Street on Castellano Drive will be diverted onto Argonaut Drive
    • Pedestrian access will be available
    • Expected construction period of 45 days
    • Total approximate project cost of $47,200

    • Expected construction period of 8 weeks upon commencement
    Canyon Springs and Castle Rock will be closed at the Silver Springs intersection:
    • Temporary crossing will be provided for access
    • Expected construction period of 6 weeks upon commencement
    The scope of work for Phase II targets the reconstruction of the channel and roadway along Silver Springs Drive including the following improvements:
    • Installation of new box culvert structures (storm drain pipes) and relocation of associated water and sanitary sewer line adjustments under the following roadway crossings: Diamond Point Circle, Silver Springs Drive, Canyon Springs Drive and Castlerock Lane
    • Construction of new reinforced concrete lined channel from Shadow Mountain Drive to Castlerock Lane
    • Construction of a desilting basin located upstream of Castlerock Lane
    • Construction of a reclaimed water line, landscaped medians and public areas, curb and gutter, sidewalks, striping and pavement on Silver Springs Drive
    Project highlights include:
    • Start date of August 29, 2007
    • Expected project duration of 9 months
    • Total approximate project cost of $5.8 million
