Sand Creek at Airport Road

Sand Creek at Airport Road
City: Aurora
Year: 1987
Project Description:

Kiowa Engineering prepared designs for Sand Creek at Airport Road (formerly Buckley road) in Aurora, Colorado as a subcontractor to the road and bridge consultant.  Kiowa Engineering performed the hydraulic analysis and designed the drop and channel improvements.  The project included a sheet pile drop structure and installation of channel bank protection at a new bridge.  The 200 foot wide drop structure is six feet high.  Design flow was 30,000 cubic feet per second.

The riprap was covered with topsoil and revegetated.  The photo taken several years after construction shows the development of native riparian vegetation.  The down cutting of the channel was stabilized.
