Wren Loop Road and White Road Culvert Replacements

Project Limits: Wren Loop Road Milepost 0.28 to 0.31 Wren-White Road Culvert.jpg

White Road Milepost 0.04 to 0.07

Federal Classification: Rural Local Access (09)

Project Description: The failed 36" diameter culvert and two smaller culverts on Wren Loop Road will be replaced with and 18-foot span culvert. The White road culverts will be replaced with a 14-foot span culvert. The project will also include development of a simulated stream bottom through the new culverts, guardrail installation and roadway repairs.

The culverts operate as a system and all of the culverts need to be replaces for the system to function properly. The culverts are also a barrier to fish passage and can become clogged with debris allowing water to build up on the upstream face of the roadway.

Funding: Project funding includes $521,000 Federal Grants, $87,000 State Grants and $102,000 Local Road Funds for a total of $710,000.

Federal Classification: Rural Local Access (09)

 Project Description: Repair existing roadway embankment by placing rock fill at the toe of the embankment in a scour area.  

Basis for Project: A segment of the roadway embankment has washed out due to high flows on Germany Creek. The embankment has been subject to ongoing erosion at the creek level. If the erosion continues unchecked the roadway prism will eventually destabilize.  

Funding: Project funding is $225,000 of Local Road Funds. 

Schedule: This project is scheduled for construction in 2019.

Mahaffey Road Drainage Improvements


Project Limits:  Mileposts 1.03 to 1.07 Mahaffey Road.jpg

 Federal Classification:  Rural Local Access (09)

 Project Description: Replace existing 15-inch CMP with a new culvert to allow for high flows and fish passage. 

Basis for Project: The existing culvert is undersized for large storm flows and fish passage. The metal bottom is completely rusted out and low flows flow under the culvert eroding the base material. At the downstream end there is a drop of approximately 1.5 feet. Mahaffey Road is a dead end road with approximately a dozen homes beyond the culvert. 

Funding: Project funding is $480,000 of Local Road Funds.

Schedule: This project is scheduled for construction in 2020.
