Holmesbrook Culvert on College Street
The City’s contractor, Kent’s Excavating, started construction on the replacement of the culvert in early September. The much-anticipated structure, that is 102 feet long, is ready for delivery and will arrive in multiple pieces. Along with the replacement of the 120-year-old structure under the roadway, new curbs, storm sewers, and pavement will be constructed. The slopes on both the north and south side of the roadway will be widened so that pedestrian access over the area will be improved. There will be a much needed new sidewalk installed on the north side of the roadway with this project. Area for a new sidewalk will be created on the south side, but that installation will take place in the future. The City will also take this opportunity to install additional waterlines west of the project to provide service redundancy to the area west of Leatherman Road.
The work is anticipated to complete at the end of October. During that time, detour routes will continue to be in place.
We do understand the inconvenience this is causing motorist, but the safety and well-being of citizens and visitors is our top priority. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we move forward with the repair so the roadway can be opened without further closures.
