  • Fixing separated joints between pipe sections on larger concrete culverts
  • Replacing unrepairable culverts
  • Placing riprap to repair and prevent erosion
  • Cleaning ditches adjacent to culverts

Traffic impacts

Most of the work will be done off the highway in the ditch bottom and will only require temporary shoulder closures.
Five locations will involve temporary road closures, with detours at four of the locations.
Detours will be restricted to occur outside the normal planting and harvest seasons.
