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 has been completed. Final design anticipated to start in FY2018.
