Canyon Creek Filings 7 & 8
Town of Erie, Colorado –  Ongoing

As part of the ongoing site development of the Canyon Creek neighborhoods of Erie, Brown Civil Engineering has performed the design of an entire system of local and collector roads, new and extended water mains, sanitary sewer mains, drainage improvements and piping of irrigation ditches and laterals for the next phase of this ongoing project, Filings No. 7 and 8. Approvals have been obtained from the Town of Erie for Preliminary Plat.

Design was performed for over a mile of local roads and nearly 3,000 LF of minor collector road. Horizontal and vertical design meet all Town of Erie geometrical requirements. Overlot grading was prepared for typical lot templates. Drainage design included both culverts and storm sewer, with all inlets and piping sized to convey 100-year flows to the nearby Town of Erie Regional Detention Pond. Piping of the Leyner-Cottonwood Ditch was provided. Ongoing engineering was provided during negotiation with two oil & gas companies to secure Surface Use Agreements.

The proposed public water system includes 12" mains along Jasper Road, Telleen Avenue and two proposed primary local roads, and 8" water mains along all other local streets, providing potable services for all 100 proposed future residences for domestic, fire supply and irrigation use. To satisfy system Town grid looping requirements, there will also be offsite mains both to the south and the north.

Railroad Crossing Relocation

Brown Civil Engineering was retained to provide construction plans for the relocation of a public at-grade rail crossing in Erie, Colorado. BCE researched the status of the application at the Public Utilities Commission (PUC), and prepared construction plans conforming to the requirements of the PUC Order. The project included an at-grade crossing of the tracks at proposed Jasper Road, an Erie minor collector street, and included associated drainage design, regrading, sidewalk adjustments and signage. There were encased pipeline crossings for proposed water and sanitary sewer pipes, and storm culverts parallel to the track. The construction drawings conform to the Technical and Engineering Specifications of the Union Pacific Railroad. Drawings have been completed and final submittal is pending due to current market conditions in the real estate market.
