The Pasco County Commission has authorized a task order for the development of a cost-effective conceptual improvement plan for the Bailey Hill Road and Zephyr Ranch Area, in East Pasco.
Board members approved a staff recommendation to have DeLoach Engineering Service complete the task for an amount not to exceed $74,840, according to agenda background materials for the board’s March 9 meeting.
“The conceptual plan will provide a rigorous assessment of the condition of the existing stormwater drainage system, identify deficiencies within the system, evaluate design alternatives for flood abatement, develop cost estimate for the selected design alternative, and derive benefit to cost ratio. A cost-effective conceptual plan may lead to detailed design and construction of the project,” the agenda backup says.
Bailey Hill Road is an unpaved rural road that extends east to Gall Boulevard and west to Fort King Road.
The project area is within the East Pasco Watershed.
There is a history of structural and property flooding, as well as roadway flooding and scouring.
DeLoach has 180 days from the notice to proceed, to complete the project.
Funding for the conceptual improvement plan is coming from the stormwater management fund.
