This week’s work on the Snow Bowl Road Drainage Improvement Project
included hydroseeding and installation of object markers at the crossing. The project has been completed, and a thank-you postcard was distributed to area residents on Monday.
The Snow Bowl Road Drainage Improvement Project will help mitigate seasonal flooding from the Rio de Flag, which can cause severe downstream impacts and render the road impassable during monsoon season and other times of the year while maintaining the integrity of the adjacent wetland area.The project included the replacement of the existing pair of 32- by 48-inch elliptical culverts on Snowbowl Rd South of US Highway 180 at the Rio de Flag crossing with seven (7) new 18- by x 24-inch culverts. Concrete headwalls and inlet/outlet aprons will were installed.
