Over the last several years, Dibble has performed a variety of project on the Durango Jail campus.
Dibble provided survey and civil engineering services to the Durango Jail, a 14-acre, 179,881 sf site at the southeast corner of 35th Avenue and Durango Street. The site consists of buildings, asphalt parking lots/drive aisles, landscaping and unimproved dirt/gravel areas. Retention was not provided within the 14-acres and there was no clearly defined drainage patterns for the site. This project designed drainage improvements consisting of surface drainage features such as curb and gutter, valley gutter, storm drain systems, and on-site retention basins. Dibble implemented drainage improvements to convey the runoff to new retention basins.
Dibble designed approximately 900 linear feet of chilled water line at the Durango Jail complex.
The 5-acre gravel parking lot at the northeast corner of 30th Drive and Watkins Street had areas of ponding water after rainfall events as there was no clearly defined drainage pattern for the parking lot. This project improved the gravel parking lot by adding an asphalt concrete surface and striping, and added on-site retention for the 100-year, 2-hour event. The parking lot drive aisles tie to Watkins Street to the south and 30th Drive to the west.
