The San Bernardino County Flood Control District has completed the 29 Palms Channel Culvert Project at El Rey Ave pending a fabricated pedestrian fence. The project construction cost was $1,913,205 and was funded by the City of Twentynine Palms and San Bernardino County Flood Control District property tax revenue. The work, in general, consists of construction of a triple reinforced concrete box, headwalls, wingwalls, cut-off walls, concrete rock slope protection, and street reconstruction including curb, gutter and sidewalks. This project aligns with the County and Board of Supervisor’s goals and objectives of ensuring development of a well-planned, balanced, and sustainable County and providing for the safety, health and social needs of County residents.

Currently, El Rey Avenue is open for public use. The remaining task in this project involves the installation of handrails, which is experiencing an extended lead time for production. This is expected to be completed by the end of the month.
