Morongo Roundabouts 

Cabazon, CA

 

VDLA worked in conjunction with The County of Riverside Transportation Department, the Morongo Band of Mission Indians and CalTrans to develop conceptual options and construction documents for the roundabouts located at I-10 and Morongo Trail.  Heavy solar exposure and high winds were taken into account when completing these designs, which used low volume drip irrigation and native plantings to provide a cost-effective and maintainable gateway to the Morongo Casino, Resort and Spa.  

Maintenance staff can monitor the irrigation and lighting portions of the project remotely via the web as part of the central control system specified for the project, helping to reduce water use and maintenance costs.  A bio-swale on the Eastern edge of the project captures and treats storm water runoff from the adjacent paved areas, prior to discharge into the storm sewer system.
