Current Activity

Posted Monday, Nov. 4

Brown and Caldwell, Inc., is overseeing the design, permitting, and construction documents for this project. They are working on:  

  • Field surveys and the engineer's design report (Done);
  • Applying for permits; and,
  • Preparing the design plans for the construction phase. The design should be finished in late fall 2019. 

We made a few funding adjustments to cover unexpected costs for a project that’s already under construction. We will not be able to start construction on Churchill Road until funding becomes available again. We'll have more details on that soon.

The purpose of this project is to replace the aged and undersized concrete box culvert that is causing Churchill Road and a nearby park to flood during heavy rain storms.  


The stormwater culvert/pipe on Churchill Road, near the southwestern portion of Beaverdam Creek, has a history of flooding both Churchill Road and Banbury Road. This seven-feet wide by six-feet high concrete culvert is in fair to poor condition. There also is an eight-inch diameter waterline pipe going through the upper half of the culvert that needs to be removed. The stormwater channel also needs to be repaired. The channel is not stable and erosion to the stream is impacting several large trees in the area.

The project will reduce the frequency and depth of flooding on Churchill Road and Banbury Road. It will also improve the stability of the streambank and improve safety for local residents using the area surrounding the stream for walking or jogging.
