Churchill Road Culvert Replacement

We're repairing a 70-year-old box culvert on Churchill Road. This box culvert carries rain through the stormwater system. Over the years, stream erosion has caused the culvert to have structural issues. This has affected the system and downstream channel.

Planning

Originally, we were going to replace the culvert. After reviewing the engineer's report, the most affordable solution is to repair it. 

Benefits

  • Culvert will last for 25 more years;
  • Protect the exposed water main that goes through the culvert;
  • Prevent the culvert from continuing to settle unevenly;
  • Allow water to properly flow through the stormwater system; and,
  • Protect the downstream channel. 

Next Steps

 

We are only doing emergency repairs at this time. Stormwater maintenance crews will repair the culvert as soon as we resume regular schedules. This could move construction to summer/fall.

History

This project is part of the Crabtree Creek Watershed Study. The culvert, which is near Beaverdam Creek, floods Churchill Road and Banbury Road. The old stormwater culvert is seven-feet wide by six-feet high. 

And, an eroded stream is affecting several large trees in the area. By stabilizing the stream, we'll protect it and make the area safer for residents who walk or jog near the stream.
