Summary of work

The project involves replacing six aging box culverts (more than 80 years old) with properly sized hydraulic structures. The culverts are located between reference posts 124 and 133.

Traffic impacts

There will be six different construction sites with one-lane bypasses using a portable stop light. A short detour is possible for one culvert location. Construction sites will be completed one at a time.
