Roadway drainage construction underway in Cloud Road area

Staff Report~ 12/3/2014

DESERT HILLS – The Skunk Creek Wash crossing on 27th Avenue just north of Cloud Road is getting some drainage improvements.

A Maricopa County Department of Transportation contractor will be on-site in the area 6 a.m.-6 p.m. throughout the month of December, adding needed improvements to the low-water crossing. The construction will include the extension of existing drainage pipes; installation of new concrete footers, headwall, and spillway; bank protection to prevent erosion; and the widening of roadway shoulders to improve roadway drainage and traffic safety.

MCDOT is noting that there may be traffic delays and asks motorists to take extra time and care driving through the area. Construction should be completed in January.
