Indian Creek Culvert Replacement Improvement Project

Public Works will begin the Indian Creek Culvert Replacement Improvement Project on June 15, 2016.

The project will replace two existing culverts near 7388 Indian Creek Road and 7364 Indian Creek Road that consist of deteriorated wooded decks and steel beams. These structures will require replacement in order to meet the current structural, safety and road design standards.Message Boards are in place and a temporary roadway will be installed around the construction area and over Indian Creek for local traffic within the construction limits to maintain access to their properties.

Each culvert will take approximately 3 months to complete. The entire construction duration for the project is approximately 6 months.

Please pay attention and use caution when traveling in and around construction zones.
