Bee Branch Railroad Culverts

RailRoad-web

Estimated Completion - 2019


The Bee Branch Creek Railroad Culverts Project includes tunneling six 8-foot diameter pipes from the Lower Bee Branch Creek approximately 165 feet through the Canadian Pacific railroad right-of-way to a junction box, and the construction of five 12-foot wide by 10-foot high concrete box culverts from the junction box 200 feet north toward Garfield Avenue and the Upper Bee Branch Creek. This will allow stormwater to drain more efficiently from the Upper Bee Branch Creek (E. 24th St. to Garfield Ave.) to the Lower Bee Branch Creek and 16th St. Detention Basin (railway yard to Kerper Blvd.). Construction is expected to begin in early 2019.
