Mt. Elden Lookout Road Drainage Improvement Project

What's New...

22 September 2023: The Mt. Elden Lookout Road Drainage Improvement Project has been completed. Public Works thanks all residents for their patience during construction of this important drainage project!

Project Overview

Following the Pipeline Fire in 2022, storm water flows within Schultz Creek Wash drastically increased, frequently overtopping and forcing the closure of Mount Elden Lookout Road. The Mount Elden Lookout Road - Shultz Creek Crossing Improvement Project includes a three-barrel box culvert along with upstream and downstream improvements to help mitigate impacts of high-volume monsoon flows through the area.
