Lucille Street Culvert Replacement & Flood Hazard Mitigation

Scope

This project replaces an existing culvert from a 36 inch diameter culvert to a 72 inch diameter culvert. Increasing the diameter of this culvert will reduce flooding on the headwaters side of a creek where private residences are located.

This project will also increase the slope of the culvert slightly to encourage water flow downstream. The existing culvert is exposed on one side and is damaged by ATV traffic. The upgrade will also bury the new culvert and protect it from damage. This project will require the relocation of utilities.
