Roanoke Avenue over Newmarket Creek Culvert Repairs

Posted on December 22, 2016 at 8:22 AM by Communications Department

Structural repairs to the Roanoke Avenue over Newmarket Creek culvert will begin the first week of January 2017 with an anticipated completion date of April 12.CulvertRepair_SC The repairs include the replacement of a section of the concrete top slab of the culvert and some minor structural repairs in the walls of the culvert. The section of the road which is repaired will be repaved upon construction completion. The repairs are similar to the recently completed Chestnut Avenue culvert.

During construction, a detour will be in place sending through traffic down Briarfield Road, up Chestnut and back down 74th Street. Local traffic will be allowed access. For further information, please contact Project Manager Carolyn Bowman at 926-3667 or
