Churchill Road Culvert Repair

Stormwater Maintenance

We're making repairs to a 70-year-old box culvert on Churchill Road. This pipe carries rain through the stormwater system. There are some structural issues caused by the stream eroding near the culvert.

Planning

We are no longer replacing the culvert on Churchill Road. After reviewing the engineer's report, the most affordable solution is to repair it. The road does not have a long history of flooding and the stormwater pipe should last another 25 years. 

We will be making repairs so that the material under the culvert is more stable. This will ensure that stormwater flows through the culvert instead of underneath it. Repairs also will protect the downstream stream channel and prevent erosion. 

Work includes: 

  • Putting a concrete wall on the upstream and downstream sides of the culvert.
  • Filling in voids under the culvert so that it does not continue to settle unevenly. 

Work is expected to be done in Spring 2021.

History

  • This project was initially part of the Crabtree Creek Watershed Study
  • There was minimal flooding on Churchill Road from previous hurricanes. Flooding also didn't affect road safety. 
  • Repairs were made in 2013 to prevent sinkholes from forming.
