Bragg Street Culvert Replacement

Stormwater System Upgrade

We are replacing a culvert at the intersection of Bragg Street and S. State Street. The pipe carries water through the stormwater system when it rains. It is failing for two reasons:

  • Age; and,
  • A drinking water line is interfering with the culvert affecting stormwater flows.

This road is closed for construction. More details below.

Construction

Construction for the stormwater part of the project started on April 8. We did close the road ahead of time on March 17 to do initial utility work.

During this project, we will be improving the stormwater system on Bragg Street. Upgrades will make it easier and safer for water to flow through the city when it rains.

Planned Upgrades 

  • Installing a new culvert at the intersection of Bragg Street and S. State Street. Instead of two dual 48" x 36" pipes, there will be one larger 4.5 ft. by 10 ft. culvert on the road. 
  • Realigning the 48" pipe that carries stormwater from S. State Street. 
  • Improving the sewer system in this area. 

Initial work included installing drinking water valves and running a temporary service to a duplex on Bragg Street. Crews installed the new culvert and will now be re-routing the stormwater pipes in the project area. 

Detour

Detour signs are routing traffic around Bragg Street to S. State Street and Gregg Street. 

Construction will last until May.
