ADOT completes stormwater improvements under North Fort Valley Road after Pipeline Fire

In the wake of flooding after the 2022 Pipeline Fire, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) has completed interim repairs and improvements to increase the capacity drainage along US Highway 180, also knows at North Fort Valley Road.Heavy runoff from a record-setting snow season earlier this year exposed damage to an existing drainage pipe parallel Fort Valley Road — between the Schultz Creek culvert and Stevanna Way.ADOT and the City of Flagstaff collaborated on an accelerated project to repair the existing drainage pipe and add a second nearby 48-inch interim pipeline. Flagstaff provided an easement for the new pipeline.“We need to emphasize that these are interim improvements,” said Brenden Foley, district administrator for ADOT’s Northcentral District. “The new line provides an important increase in the system’s drainage capacity while Flagstaff plans for future capacity improvements. We appreciate the city’s help on this project.”

Stormwater damage had caused sections of the ground above the old pipeline parallel to southbound US 180 to sink. Repair work included installing a new pipe and pavement, and the replacement of a sidewalk and driveways, including those for the city’s Fire Station No. 5.
