The Van Buren Street Channel is a component of Avondale’s Van Buren Multi-use Corridor Project. It is designed to provide a drainage system along Van Buren Street carrying stormwater west of 103rd Avenue to the Agua Fria River. The channel project will improve stormwater drainage in the Avondale City Center at Avondale Boulevard (115th Avenue) and Van Buren Street, and solve other crucial drainage issues for current and future development along Van Buren Street. When completed, the channel will provide flood hazard protection up to the 10-year storm event (10% chance of occurring in a year).
The Design Concept Report was completed in August 2013 and is available in the District's library (A565.605). In July 2017 the City of Avondale requested that this project be removed from the District's list of future CIP projects. The City now intends to move forward with a multi-use path along the north side of the corridor, but is removing the drainage channel component.
