Ventura Road. (Reaches 1-3). Between N. Ventura Road and the UPRR bridge (Reach 4), a968-foot long floodwall will be constructed on the river side of the road (6-foot visible height), a flood gate will be installed across N. Ventura Road., and a 4- to 6- foot floodwall will be constructed on the south side of N. Ventura Road. for 888 feet to the UPRR bridge, where it will tie into the railroad property via 40-foot-long earth embankments (north and south UPRR). At the El Rio Drain (which outlets to the river within Reach 4), the existing outlet structure will be reconstructed, and a flap gate will be added to the channel section that discharges directly under N. Ventura Road.
