Stormwater Conveyance

Ditching is done at locations to be seal coated prior to seal coating and in problem areas. Material is excavated or bladed onto the adjacent roadway, picked up and loaded into trucks to be hauled off site.

Bridges under 20 feet are repaired as needed, they are inspected by the Engineering Department on a scheduled basis, and random inspections are made by supervisors to insure their integrity.

Culverts are repaired, removed, and replaced as needed. There are several replaced each year, as most of the existing culverts have been in place many years and are deteriorating. New culverts are placed in areas where they can solve water accumulation problems.
