JACKASS GULCH

LITTLETON, CO

Stabilization Improvements

This is a joint project between the City of Littleton and Urban Drainage and Flood Control District. Jackass Gulch, a stream that runs on the north side of Mineral Avenue, from the railroad upstream to the Highline Canal. The specific area of construction is located east of Jackass Hill Road.

The project purpose is to stabilize this eroding section that is threatening adjacent homes (along W. Jamison Way) and is also creating excess sediment loads to areas downstream. This is a steep portion of channel with tall, steep, and overhanging banks. The work includes drop structures made of grouted boulders, buried riprap, and re vegetation. Trees that must be removed to accommodate the work will be replaced.
