Donegal Drive Culvert Improvements
This project includes culvert improvement at the following location:
North Side of the Culvert at the intersection of Gwilada and Donegal.
The improvements will consist of modifications to the existing headwalls, construction of new headwalls and grading work.
The project is currently under the design phase and is tentatively scheduled to be bid in Spring of 2022 and completed by Summer of 2022.
The project is estimated at $250,000. The township has been awarded an Ohio Public Works Commission grant for 50% of the project cost.
The project is located at the following location: 11485 Gideon Lane (Approximately 250 feet from Kemperknoll Road).
The project requires the entire length (120 feet) of the existing 84-inch steel culvert to be removed and replaced with an 84-inch reinforced concrete pipe, along with new headwalls at the inlet and outlet ends. Minor creek grading and rock channel protection will be required to help control erosion around the new culvert. All disturbed areas will be replaced in kind. Utilities will be adjusted or relocated as determined by the respective utility company.
The township has selected Carpenter Marty Transportation to design the improvements. Once the design is complete this Summer, the anticipated construction date is the Fall of 2022.
