Period of Performance:


In November 7, 2006, voters passed the Carlsbad Unified School District’s Proposition “P” bond measure, partially to fund the Carlsbad High School Modernization Program. As part of this program, the District installed storm drain improvements on Chestnut Avenue in front of Carlsbad High School. This storm drain was also part of the City of Carlsbad’s Master Drainage Plan to accommodate a 90-acre drainage area. Therefore the cost for the project was shared jointly by both the District and the City.

O’Day Consultants was selected to design the improvements, which consisted of approximately 905 feet of 36” storm drain beginning at the intersection of Chestnut Avenue and Valley Street and extending westerly along the north side of Chestnut Avenue to an existing 42” storm drain. Our engineers, technicians and surveyors performed the following tasks:

  • Project Management/Processing with City of Carlsbad
  • Coordination with CUSD including Timelines
