STUDY AND DETAILED PLANS for PHASED IMPROVEMENTS
Client City of Springdale, Arkansas
Location Springdale, Arkansas

Project Detail

In 2001 MWY provided a drainage study including recommendations and opinions of probable costs for drainage improvements upstream of Gutensohn Road. MWY subsequently provided detailed plans and specifications for the project which was divided into the following two phases:

Phase I consisted of improving an existing drainage channel between Campbell Street and Gutensohn Road. The improvements included construction of an eight foot wide by 1,400 linear foot long rectangular concrete ditch with a transition structure to an existing box culvert at Gutensohn Road.

Phase II consisted of the construction of a storm drainage system upstream of the channel in Phase I. This phase included several thousand feet of 54-inch and 60-inch drainage pipe, as well as inlets, utility relocations and street reconstruction. Specially designed inlets and junction boxes were required in some locations to mitigate conflicts with existing utilities.
